George Washington hosts defending America East champion Maryland-Baltimore Country on Wednesday night in a game rife with Atlantic 11 implications. Tipoff is 7:30 p.m.
The Colonials (2-1) are coming off a 83-71 loss at Auburn during which they led 44-29 at halftime. The Tigers then outscored the Colonials 25-9 in the first 10 minutes of the second half, as Tay Waller's three-pointer put Auburn ahead since a 20-17 lead in the first half. Damian Hollis scored 13 of his 16 points in the first half for George Washington (2-1).
"I wasn't worried about scoring; I was just worried about winning," Hollis said. "The scoring just happened to come and I took advantage of mistakes the defense made and capitalized on it.
"We take it as the first half we played strong and we have to play the second half just as strong as the first half. We have to do everything the way we did in the first half and hopefully, we'll just come through with a win because if we ended the game in the first half; we would have won easily. We just have to put two halves together."
Off to a 3-1 start, the Retrievers are led by senior forward Darryl Proctor, who is averaging 20 points and nine rebounds this season, and senior guard Jay Greene, who is averaging 15 points, 7.5 assists and five rebounds.
