Last night at Rose Hill Gym in New York

Seen and Heard

The best taunt of the came from Fordham’s student body after GW had put the game away in the final moments. The vocal, red T-shirt-clad group behind the basket started chanting in unison toward a large contingent of GW students, “George-town re-jects.” …

It must have been Disney day in the Bronx as cartoon characters were floating around Rose Hill Gym. In addition to the oversized Rams mascot, Dora the Explorer and Elmo were there, along with several other funny-looking guys this scribe did not recognize. …

Pops Mensah-Bonsu sat on the bench in a gray sweat suit while his crutches rested behind him. …

GW’s Montrell McDonald missed his third straight game as part of his indefinite suspension for breaking team rules.


“It was kind of funny because he is the ugliest cheerleader I have seen. We are definitely missing Pops on the floor. We are just going to try to keep winning so he can come back and play another one.”

— GW guard Danilo Pinnock on having Pops Mensah-Bonsu sitting on the bench in street clothes after suffering a small tear in the meniscus of his left knee in the last game.

By the numbers

14 Atlantic 10 wins by the Colonials this season, setting a school record. GW’s previous best was 13 in 1998-99 under coach Tom Penders.

16 Consecutive wins for GW, extending the nation’s longest winning streak and the longest in school history.
