Season opener on Friday at 7, tailgate starting at 4 pm!

Do you like basketball? Do you like tailgates? If so, you are a good person and in the right place.

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.
