Men’s Basketball Slips vs. Valpo, 82-79

The Colonials shot .585 from the field, while Valparaiso hit 15-of-27 three-pointers 


In a Saturday afternoon affair against the Missouri Valley's Valparaiso, a team GW last met and downed at Madison Square Garden in the 2016 NIT Championship Game, a thriller of an offensive ballgame broke out. Both teams shot well over 50 percent from the field (GW .585, Valpo .536) but the Crusaders' 15-of-27 effort from three-point range was the differentiating factor in GW's 82-79 setback.

Arch Campbell's Weekend Movie Guide (11/30/18)

Olivia Colman stars in The Favourite

From our friend, Arch Campbell...

First Man - 4 Stars. Ryan Gosling blasts into space as strong, silent Neil Armstrong - the first man to walk on the Moon. The mix of biography and space gave me goosebumps.

Green Book - 3½ Stars. New York bouncer drives jazz pianist on a concert tour of 1962 pre-civil rights South. Each man emerges better for the experience.

Can You Ever Forgive Me? - 3½ Stars. Melissa McCarthy nails the story of writer Lee Israel, who faked a series of celebrity letters, when her career sputters. Funny and charming.
