Untimely Injury

George Washington's Pops Mensah-Bonsu has a slight tear in his left knee and will miss at least two weeks. This is an unfortunate story.

Hopefully, the guy can recover in time for the NCAA tournament. At 23-1, the Colonials are enjoying an historic season and are on the verge of cracking the Top Five, which is unchartered territory for them. Regardless of whether or not you care about GW basketball, you hate to see a burgeoning feel-good story and dream season altered by a team's best player going down through injury. The Colonials, undoubtedly, have plenty of naysayers out there, people who think their gaudy record in the down Atlantic 10 is unfairly inflated, people who think their schedule is soft. Well, maybe, but whatever. You'd still like to see them at full strength as they attempt to prove the doubters wrong.
