Two things to chew on.
1) At the beginning of the season it was mentioned that CC hadn’t worked with any of his assistants before, but was familiar with each of them for their skill set. That is huge to me considering it looked like he had a pretty cohesive staff all year round and it might also mean he can put together another staff with top tier talent going forward.
2) What worries me, is two of the ACs leaving are both big recruiters for us. If each leaves, what does that do for our transfer market? Would they possibly follow the assistants?

There was a video I remember watching linked on his recruits page that made it seem like he and his father were both very much on the same page about him finding his own basketball identity. Now that’s not to say that if he blows up here and becomes a star, that maybe later on, he joins his dad, but that was my takeaway from the video.

When you guys talk about JBIV going pro, do you mean NBA or in Europe? Or the G League? Why would he want G League over playing at a much higher profile school?

Overseas. JB doesn't have the defense and more importantly the three point shooting to make it on an NBA roster. If he wanted to go to a higher profile school he would have done so last year itself but it would have been a terrible decision on his part. I didn't feel the same way about Bamisile because Joe at least had the defensive potential to get minutes at a higher school with some coaching (had he chosen the right place).

Bishop has already experienced being at the higher level and riding the bench at LSU. He has proven production at GW now, but as we've seen with Bamisile if you aren't good enough defensively you won't sniff the court consistently regardless of your scoring abilities. JB's got a good role at GW, why would he leave that for a bit more money and risk wasting a year not playing as much? It's more likely that JB comes back to GW than he transfers up again. I just doubt he will score as much with hopefully a more balanced roster and he could probably make more overseas. Barring a BA-like jump from 3 his final year he's better off starting his pro career (and I say this as someone who would of course love for him to come back). His defense is what it is at this point.

I disagree with you DMV on the potential for him to still go to another school. If the NIL money is better at another school (even if it means he is coming off the bench rather than starting), I don’t see why he wouldn’t make the jump.

With so many open spots and potentially a very young team, would also think there is a spot for Amir.  His leadership and defensive intensity in practice may be a good  leader on the court for the freshman

I am almost positive Amir is out of eligibility. He was injured the Covid year, but technically was still a scholarship student so I believe that cancels out the extra year. Essentially he has been a scholarship player now 5-years.

GW Men's Hoops » The 2023 A10 Tourney » 3/01/2023 10:29 pm

Despite the win tonight, if my understanding of the A10 seeding rules are correct, we have officially been eliminated from the double-bye top four teams in the league. From here on out, we can go as high as 5 and as low as 7. 

Not bad for a team originally picked by most to be in the bottom of the league.

We cannot be certain of a bye as of this point.  First my disclaimer...I haven't a clue as to how the A-10 tiebreakers work, but as of this date (including Sunday's games), we are only certain to finish with a better record than four teams, namely Loyola, URI, St. Joes and UMass.   The remaining 11 teams in the conference either have reached or surpassed 9 wins, or can get to 9 wins by winning their remaining 2 games.  Or to put it another way, it is theoretically possible for GW, Duquesne, Mason, Lasalle, Richmond, The Bonnies (who are now 8-9) and Davidson to all finish with 9 wins.  As 6 teams will have to play in the first round, we will have to finish ahead of 2 of the potential 9 2in teams teams to get a first round bye based upon record, again not knowing what the tie breakers are.  Further, of the 4 teams with 7 or 8 wins, only Lasalle plays a top 4 team (Dayton).  On the other hand,only Mason, GW and Duquesne can reach 10 wins, which guarantees a bye..  Bottom line...Wednesday at. Davidson is looking like a crucial game for us.  Win it and we are guaranteed a bye.  Lose it and we can see ourselves in a multi-team mix for a bye.

Good news for you LSF, I do know how they determine tiebreakers.

It starts with head to head and then goes to record against final standings. Meaning if you have a win against the top of the league and the other tied team doesn’t, you move above them. For example, if we end up tied with GMU, and they win against Fordham (and we lose at VCU), GMU has the tiebreaker because they have the better win against top of the conference (we both beat Dayton and lost to everyone else above us).

GW Men's Hoops » The 2023 A10 Tourney » 2/26/2023 4:33 pm

The issue here is simply we have zero depth. Playing on back-to-back days is tough for any team, but even tougher for us, when two of our starters average 37.5 minutes a game.

Is this team one to surprise (see Dayton game), sure. But do I foresee us breaking the curse this year? Better question to all of you, do you believe in miracles?

GW Men's Hoops » Where’s Bamisile? » 1/14/2023 3:56 pm

From a recent Tulsa World article on the Sooners:

While Sherfield has emerged as the Sooners’ transfer star, fellow portal newcomer Joe Bamisile has found less success in his first season at OU.

Through 14 games, the guard from George Washington is averaging 3.4 points in 10.6 minutes per game and has not featured off the bench since the Sooners Dec. 17 win over Central Arkansas.

Moser danced around a question on why Bamisile has remained planted to the bench and instead spoke on the challenge facing role players like Bamisile, Otega Oweh and C.J. Noland.

“I met with Joe yesterday, met with Otega,” Moser explained. “You hear (Los Angeles Lakers coach) Darvin Ham say with the Lakers, he’ll say to the guys that you’re my ‘stay ready’ guys. And that’s hard. To be a stay-ready guy is hard.”

Coach had been pretty good earlier in the season pulling Bishop for a second when hero ball tendencies appeared, but I missed it if he was sat or talked to tonight. In some instances, Bishop needs to carry this team on his back, but tonight he needed to give the ball up more when the double teams on his left hand side kept coming. 

I agree but who’s Bishop getting pulled for? Other than Harris the only guards on our team now are walk ons.

In the early part of the season it was Amir, Quanzi, or Clark. And really it was only ever for more than a couple of minutes. Acted like a reset button for Bishop.  

GW Men's Hoops » GW vs Richmond Game Thread » 1/04/2023 9:46 pm

I have been so impressed with Bishop's improvement this season, but tonight in the last 10 minutes of the second half he reverted to hero ball Bishop. I understand he is our best shooter, but Richmond shut him down repeatedly and he threw away pass after pass or took ill-advised circus shots. What bothered me the most was on three such occasions of being stripped or simply turning it over, Bishop frustrated, only jogged back to play defense. On two such instances Richmond then took the ball directly to the hoop while Bishop was merely at half court.

Not serious post. Our guys are playing with great battle. We are just missing this Battle.

GW Men's Hoops » Who gets extra COVID eligibility year? » 12/02/2022 10:35 am

It would appear Clark would have two years of eligibility as well.

GW Men's Hoops » Who gets extra COVID eligibility year? » 12/02/2022 12:18 am

Adams and Lindo will be completing their fourth “full” season this year so they will be out of eligibility. They each played in 2020 as well but that year is not considered a “full year”.

Bishop will have one more year of eligibility but will have completed four years of school and may simply choose to graduate.

Recruits » Recruit: Jacoi Hutchinson, Guard, 2023 - Committed to GW!! » 10/31/2022 9:19 pm

Extremely excited by the offers, rankings, and pedigrees of these three young men. My only question is are any of these three true PGs or should we expect one more in the mix? All three have been described as combo guards in write ups but most of the sites list them as SGs. In todays game of positionless basketball we may not need a true PG but has anyone heard of any in the pipeline or should we expect one of these three to be a main ball handler.

Kind of hard to blame JC for not doing enough international recruiting since there were strict travel restrictions in place around the globe for most of his tenure, and some countries still have restrictions in place. Trust me, as someone who got marooned for six months in a country I do not live in when the whole COVID thing started, it was not a good time for doing anything that might have involved crossing an international  border. I will give JC a pass on this one, though GW should usually be agressive at getting international recruits.

GW Alum Abroad, that's a great point, but I also truly believe that JC's intention from the jump was to focus far more heavily on DC recruiting. I remember going to several of his meet and greets with fans (including with the fan council) in the first several months after he was hired, and he repeatedly made it a point that we were the basketball capital of the world (he named several big time stars) and said we need to be focusing here. 

Not to say he wouldn't have looked abroad if he had the chance, but I remember that a big part of his introductory message was how we needed to look in our own backyard.

Barring a last minute development with some previous irons in the fire, what you see on the roster is likely what you will get for 2022-23.


I get it but I have flashbacks to last year when we had to run Tyler Warner out there because we had no bigs. Even if they don’t contribute much I hope we can find a grad transfer or two to at least have emergency depth in case of injury.

Bigger worry for me is that Bishop, Adams, and I guess Maximus are the only guards on the roster. Bishop is going to have to play 40 a game. Hopefully Caputo can teach him how to play defense without fouling.

Is Amir Harris definitely gone. I have heard different things from people on this board. Not expecting him to get big minutes any way, but at least it would be another body at guard.

Just for fun:
1) GW Nelsons - George’s prized steed he supposedly road into battle on occasion.
2) GW Rebels - Just so our student section could be the Rebel Alliance.
3) GW Splinters - For George’s wooden teeth (urban legend by the way, they were actually made up of a number of things not including wood).
4) GW RIverhorses- Still hippos but classier?
5) GW Baldwins, Todds, Washingtons, Powells, or Warrens - Throw in a non alumni like GW Andreses for good measure.

For me, a school name works best when it signifies a group that you can be a part of. Even better if it is recognizing a group that your values align with. 

Because GW students already lack school spirit and I don’t believe in GW’s marketing office to properly get me pumped up about an animal or color, my vote would be for Revolutionaries.

For a school as political as GW I think the word will offer multiple meanings to multiple people. And it has a historical bent as well.

I really want to see Bishop and Lindo together. I know both will be entering their third season together, but both DO NOT play well off each other. In year one JNJ was a much better facilitator to Lindo than Bishop ever was. And in year two it was the same with Freeman and Lindo.

JNJ and Ricky did not play in any games together

GW18 you are 100% correct. It must have been Brelsford. I just remember Lindo lacked and continues to lack chemistry with Bishop.
