Men's Basketball: George Washington 80 VCU 56

GW's Yuta Watanabe (#12) led all scorers with 23 points

From our friends at GW Athletics...

GW Men's Basketball Dominates VCU

Yuta Watanabe scores 23 points and Terry Nolan Jr. adds 18 as GW wins 80-56


In a series that hasn't always been kind to GW, including a cruel twist of fate against VCU in last year's match-up at the Smith Center, the Colonials were long overdue for a fun one. On the shoulders of Yuta Watanabe, GW found the fun and thoroughly enjoyed a well-rounded, resounding win against the visiting Rams.

From our friend, Arch Campbell...

Lady Bird - 4 Stars. Greta Gerwig directs a spot-on mother/daughter battle, during a young woman's high school senior year. Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf deliver award-worthy performances.

Darkest Hour - 4 Stars. Set in May 1940, as Winston Churchill becomes Prime Minister and ignores the advice to negotiate with Hitler.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri - 4 stars. Caustic, often shock comedy, starring Frances McDormand as a woman at war with the town police over the unsolved murder of her daughter.

I, Tonya - 4 Stars. Margot Robbie dazzles as hard scrabble Olympic skater and tabloid queen Tonya Harding.

Phantom Thread - 4 Stars. 1950s fashion artist Daniel Day-Lewis finds his match in waitress Vicky Krieps. Hitchcock would have loved this power struggle romance.
