The Colonials finalized their CBE Classic schedule Friday, announcing that they will travel to the Stroh Center in Bowling Green, Ohio, for three sub-regional games after opening the Classic at the previously announced matchup against host California.

The three sub-regional games will take place over three days from Nov. 21 to 23. The Colonials open the Bowling Green Subregional against Detroit on Nov. 21 at 5 p.m., followed by a contest against Austin Peay on Nov. 22 at 5 p.m. GW rounds out its sub-regional schedule on Nov. 23 against the host Bowling Green, with play scheduled to start at the conclusion of the 5 p.m. game between Austin Peay and Detriot.

The CBE Classic is an early-season basketball tournament, hosted by Cal, Georgia, Missouri and Notre Dame, all of which hold regional round action before advancing to a host-only Championship Tournament. GW and the remainder of the competing programs will continue on to a round-robin series at one of two sub-regional sites: Bowling Green and the Macon Subregional at the University Center in Macon, Ga.

The Colonials seek to re-establish themselves as a basketball powerhouse under new head coach Mike Lonergan in the upcoming season. GW is coming off their best season in the past four years, where former head coach Karl Hobbs lead the team to a 17-14 overall record, tying for fourth place in the Atlantic 10.
