Duke and George Washington have the stage to themselves early this afternon. The cynic might suggest that it's some sort of conspiracy to get Duke on TV by themselves, and thus, enjoy a bigger piece of the spotlight. The non-cynic might just ask, "Hey, why the hell is there only one game on now, but three games at the same time around 5:30?"

Either way, that's what we've been handed. And what George Washington is being handed is an ass-whoopin'. I think they're a better team than they're showing today, but they're turning the ball over at an alarming pace and appear to have no poise whatsoever. One team looks like they've been there before, and one team looks like they really enjoy running around and occasionally throwing the basketball at the rim.

GW has closed the lead to 12 with about a minute to play before the half.
