Games against Maryland, Miami (FL), Kansas State and a home contest against Georgia headline George Washington's 2013-14 men's basketball schedule.
Seven of the Colonials Atlantic 10 games will broadcast nationally on NBC Sports Network including the March 2 matchup at the Smith Center against new conference rival George Mason.
George Washington hosts Radford on November 8 for its season opener, plays its first conference game at LaSalle on January 9 and wraps up the regular season March 8 at Fordham.
The Colonials (13-17, 7-9 last season) return their starting lineup, which includes four rising sophomores and senior center Isaiah Armwood. Indiana transfer Maurice Creek bolsters the backcourt.
"We're really excited and anxious to showcase this GW team to our fans, alumni and recruits across the country," Colonials coach Mike Lonergan said. "Isaiah Armwood and Maurice Creek are hungry to end their careers as winners and lead this team to compete for an Atlantic 10 title. Whether it's in the stands at the Charles E. Smith Center or tuning in on national television, it's going to be a great season to watch GW men's basketball."
