After leading George Washington men’s basketball to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in seven years with a 24-9 record, head coach Mike Lonergan has been extended through the 2020-2021 season.
The ninth-seeded Colonials, 24-8 after going 23-38 in coach Mike Lonergan’s first two seasons, meet eighth-seeded Memphis on Friday in Raleigh, N.C.
George Washington University head basketball coach Mike Lonergan joined the Junkies in studio Monday morning.
George Washington is now the area’s best team, apologies to Georgetown, Maryland and new A-10 rival George Mason.
This year, GW expects to win, as was the case in last Friday’s 72-54 spanking of visiting Radford that kicked off the program’s 100th season.
The Colonials are searching for their identity and are 3-3 heading into Sunday’s matchup with Manhattan in the BB&T Classic at Verizon Center, just 16 blocks from their Smith Center home.
Listen to Mike Lonergan in studio on his new position at Colonials’ head coach and an inside look at the hiring process.
“I’m excited about the opportunity,” said Lonergan. “I truly feel blessed.”
