Weekend recap: men beat Manhattan, women beat #10 Cal, both get votes in top 25

Well, it's been a while. The men's team got its first vote in the AP top 25 poll since the 2006-2007 season after beating Manhattan. The men's vote came from local writer John Feinstein, who is one of the people who helped organize the BB&T Classic tournament. I wouldn't say he's a fan of GW, but he is sympathetic. Anyway, awesome to see that.

And speaking of awesome, the women's team beat #10 Cal on Friday, earning them 16 votes in the AP top 25, the first time since 2008-2009. They face #8 Maryland today, which is definitely a big test.

As for the Manhattan game, the guys pulled out a tough one, overcoming a 9-point halftime deficit to win by 6. Isaiah "Zeek" Armwood and Maurice Creek combined for 47 points each. GWHoopsters said a lot more on the game. One negative thing -- poor free throw shooting, only 61.5%.
