"The announcement of the 2018 men's basketball championship coming to D.C., just days after the news of our record number of national television games ahead in 2014-15, is yet another sign of the strong, upward trajectory of our program and conference, and should be very pleasing to our fans both locally and across the country," said George Washington Director of Athletics Patrick Nero. "This is an incredible city to live in and to visit, and we're thrilled that D.C. will play host to this marquee event."
"Having grown up locally I have great memories of watching basketball games at the many venues around the city and in the area," said Head Men's Basketball Coach Mike Lonergan. "To have this opportunity to compete for a championship at Verizon Center in front of our loyal fan base, family and friends will be very special for me. I've always thought that the best high school basketball in the country is played in the DMV, so having the A-10 Championship here should aid our efforts to recruit locally and be attractive to players who can now try to win a championship at home."

"When I was hired at GW three years ago it fulfilled a career-long dream to coach at the highest level of college basketball," said Coach Lonergan. "Having had the opportunity to return to my roots and once again coach in the area where I grew up, it's now my truest hope that this will be where I retire. I'm very grateful to be able to coach this proud program, and I want to thank President Knapp, Patrick Nero, my family, friends, players, assistants and staff who have helped to make this possible."Pretty cool!
