George Washington had done enough this season to earn an invitation to the NCAA tournament, but on Sunday it was made official. GW is headed to the big dance.
George Washington is back in the tournament for the first time since 2007. This may be a team accomplishment, but it means a lot especially to fifth-year senior Maurice Creek.
Team: George Washington Colonials (24-8, 11-5, Atlantic 10)
