Michigan and George Washington will meet on Saturday for the just the second time. The first matchup came in the 1993 NCAA Tournament, when the “Fab Five” scored 69 of Michigan’s 72 points in a Sweet 16 victory.

That was the last time George Washington reached the Sweet 16, and the program has just one NCAA Tournament appearance since 2007.

Maurice Joseph is in his third season as head coach. He played for Michigan State for two seasons (2005-06, 2006-07) before transferring to Vermont.

The Colonials are 0-3 this season: home losses to Stony Brook and Siena followed by 19-point loss at Virginia. Their second-leading scorer this season is D.J. Williams, who sat out last season after transferring from Illinois.

This game is part of the Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament, being played at a casino. The other matchup Saturday is Providence against South Carolina; the winners and losers will face each other on Sunday.
