GW vs Catholic is on Saturday! Here are some previews

GW's first exhibition game is this Saturday at 2 pm at the Smith Center. I'm pumped (though unfortunately I'm going to miss it, going to Va. to canvass for Obama.)

But anyway, here are a couple previews of the game. First, from, a thorough and factual one. They're calling the game "eras colliding," as Coach Mike Longeran used to play and be the coach at Catholic, and coached them to a Division III national title with them in 2000-2001. Villanova transfer Isaiah Armwood will play for GW, while new freshman Kevin Larsen is questionable with an injury.

And here's Herve's preview from I have no idea how Herve learns all this stuff about opposing teams, but it's pretty impressive. Herve's prediction:
PREDICTION:A sparse collection of old men watching, young, athletic bodies exert themselves. It’s either an exhibition basketball game or any Tuesday afternoon for Dominique Strauss-Kahn. GW by 27.
Of course, this is just an exhibition game, so it's ok if we lose. Hopefully we won't, though.
