Joe McDonald and Maurice Creek are both listed as day-to-day for Wednesday’s game against Duquesne, according to an athletics department spokesman.
McDonald was sidelined after reinjuring his hip last week in a game against La Salle, while Creek was a late scratch for Saturday’s road game at Dayton due to illness.
If one or both players return to the lineup Wednesday night, GW will get a huge lift. McDonald has cemented his role as a floor general this season and has successfully been able to run head coach Mike Lonergan’s half court offense as well as provide good pressure on the defensive end. McDonald leads the team in both assists and steals.
Creek, on the other, hand has added experience and court leadership to a relatively young Colonials team. Creek leads the team in scoring, averaging 14.4 points per game, and is GW’s best free throw and three point shooter.
Comcast Sportsnet reported last night that both McDonald and Creek had been listed as doubtful.
The Colonials will try and stay perfect at home Wednesday when they host visiting Duquesne at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
