GW tips off its season against the Highlanders of Radford University at the Smith Center this Friday at 7pm. Radford is located in Radford, Virginia (makes sense) which is right off I-81 in the Shenandoah Valley. They're coached by one of Shaka Smart's former assistants, Mike Jones, so look for a lot of high-energy pressing (not the Mike Jones famous for rapping about purple drank and putting his cell number in songs.)
But aside from the game (as if you need more?) there's a 4 pm tailgate where GW is shutting down 22nd street. Free food, drinks and music. Here's more on both events. I hope to see you there! There may be a George Washington sighting -- or at least a guy with a red beard, colonial wig and tri-corner hat.
