GW vs AU tonight: The Battle of Rock Creek Park

GW plays American tonight at the Smith Center in what I'll call the Battle of Rock Creek Park. You might notice that Georgetown is also near Rock Creek Park and they beat AU, but since they've refused to play GW since 1983, they are disqualified from this championship.

American had a good season last year, making the NCAA tourney behind shooting Garrison Carr who was this year's Patriot League preseason player of the year. This season, the Eagles are 4-4 with wins against Howard, Jacksonville, Stony Brook, and St. Francis (PA) and losses to Georgetown, Oklahoma State, Mt. St. Mary's, and Fairfield. In the Post's Atlantic 11 basketball poll, GW is #9 and American is #11.

Here's the preview, and the prediction thread (no Herve preview tonight).
