This is an under the radar game between two pretty good teams. I could see a rematch in a 7 vs 10 game in March.
GW has a power player down low in Tyler Cavanaugh who knows what the ACC is all about he started his career at Wake Forest.
Miami is second in the nation in points allowed at 57ppg. They are going to make it tough for the visitors.
George Washington Colonials
Cavanaugh has become a force for the Colonials, averaging 17ppg and 7rpg. It is the rest of the team that is full of question marks.
Yuta Watanabe is a rare Japanese national playing NCAA ball. He is a somewhat proven scorer but he is on the shelf right now.
Into the scoring vacuum pops Jordan Roland a sophomore guard from New York. He scored a season high 27 points and has scored 11 or more in three straight. They need those points but he is unproven.
Collin Smith is another Colonial with size and he can take some of the burden off Cavanaugh inside. He is not a big scorer but gives them some rim protection. He is a freshman from the state of Florida and might be pumped.
GW has done well against a schedule that has included good competition.
They have road wins at Temple and at Harvard. Not powerhouses but they were underdogs in both games.
Given the huge hoops brands in the ACC it is easy to forget about Miami but this is a good program and the talent is better than you know.
They graduated some key players last year opening up opportunities for JaQuan Newton and Davon Reed to grow their games and they have, becoming the top two scorers on the team. Forward Kamari Murphy has also increased his role as an active defender and rebounder.
Bruce Brown and Dewan Huell are five star prospects getting their feet wet before conference play. They were never going to be one and done types but they have shown that they will be key contributors.
Miami has some length but not much bulk so this will be a good challenge as they try and contain the inside presence of GW. I am not sure I buy this group as an elite defensive team just yet.

Free George Washington Colonials vs. Miami Hurricanes NCAAB Prediction:
I think this will be a good game. The Colonials have some strength inside while the Canes are better on the perimeter
Smart scheduling for GW getting out of the cold this time of year but that might take away from their focus.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: George Washington +14
This line shocks me. I would run to the window and get down on GW. No upset but they can keep it under 10 points.
