In an even game like this, go with the better bench acumen. GW has Indiana transfer Maurice Creek and Villanova transfer Isaiah Armwood, giving them the type of high-end talent needed to advance. The Colonials might have to play without their second leading scorer, Kethan Savage, who only played briefly in the Atlantic 10 tournament after sitting out since Jan. 18 with a broken left foot. A source says Savage, who averages 12.7 points per game, is "touch and go" to play against Memphis, but GW knows how to play without him, so expect the Colonials to advance.
