The Dukes will be looking to run it to 11 wins in row at home Wednesday night against the George Washington Colonials who will be looking to snap the streak and continue a surprising start of their own. The Colonials(11-10, 4-3) have however dropped 4 of 5 after running off 3 wins in a row to begin conference play including a loss to Harvard. Tony Taylor is the only GW player averaging double figures due in part to the rest of the lineup sharing minutes. Taylor is also the only player averaging more than 27 minutes a game. Serbian guard Nemanja Mikic, presents as a dangerous three point shooter currently 4th in the league in 3 point shooting and 2nd in 3 pointers made. Three Colonials average more than 5 boards a game and as a unit, they make up one of the best offensive rebounding front courts in the league. However, the Colonials find themselves outside of the top 10 in scoring and field goal % defending. The Colonials are the 2nd to last place team in defending the 3.
