Atlantic 10 Championship Highlights: GW 75, Dayton 62

The George Washington Colonials earned their first Atlantic 10 Tournament championship since 2003 and clinched their first ticket to the NCAA Tournament since 2008 with a thrilling 75-62 victory over Dayton yesterday at the Richmond Coliseum. In case you missed it, here are the highlights, courtesy of RaiseHigh TV with WRGW’s Jeff Pawling and Mike Martenak on the call.

And in case you were wondering where the Colonials will be traveling for the Big Dance, the latest Bracketology from ESPN’s Charlie Creme doesn’t have GW traveling anywhere. In fact, Creme has the Colonials hosting first and second round matchups at the Charles E. Smith Center. So get ready, because GW basketball on Tex Silverman Court may not be done just yet.

But for now, congratulations to the 2015 Atlantic 10 Champion George Washington Colonials! The official bracket and seedings for the NCAA Tournament will be revealed on Monday, March 16th at 7 pm on ESPN.
