Enjoyable read. Always good to see this type of outreach from the athletic department.

What's the best moment in GW basketball history?

Just saw this via GWHoops: the athletic department is holding a poll and contest for people to pick the best moment in GW history. There are five choices: GW beating #5 West Virginia (and Jerry West) in 1960, the 1993 NCAA tourney run, President Clinton in the audience as GW beats #1 UMass, Shawnta Rogers' buzzer-beater against Xavier to make the NCAA tourney, and the end of the Charlotte game in 2006 to keep GW undefeated in conference.

Pretty cool stuff! Check it out.
