The La Salle Explorers (12-13, 3-10 CONF) and the George Washington Colonials (12-14, 6-7 CONF) will meet on Saturday, February 22nd for an A10 conference matchup at the Charles E. Smith Center in Washington, DC. The game will be played at 4:00 PM eastern time.

La Salle is coming off a 58-49 home win over lowly Fordham in their last game. That victory snapped a two-game losing streak for the Explorers, who are currently seven games under .500 in conference play. George Washington is coming off a 70-67 road win over Duquesne. George Washington has now won back-to-back games, both of which being A10 wins.
