GW plays UVa today at 7:30 at the Smith Center!

GW faces #6 Virginia tonight at the Smith Center, the biggest game in many years. This in the highest ranked team to visit since 1995, when GW faced (and beat!) John Calipari's #1 UMass, with the Clinton family in attendance.

So it's a big game. Virginia is favored, but GW can win this with solid defense and good outside shooting. And you should be there! The Smith Center needs to be packed with loud, rowdy and excited GW fans to drown out any tie- and blazer-wearing Cavaliers fans who may be there. It's sold out, but you can get tickets on Stubhub -- make sure to not let UVa fans get them. (Seriously.)

The teams faced off last year at UVa's campus, and GW led at halftime before getting tipped 59-42. The Hatchet has more.

I'm pretty pumped. So is David Earl, who runs the Hail to the Buff podcast, who gives a series of great reasons why you, the GW fan, should be there and going nuts. He also talks to a UVa blogger about the game.
