WASHINGTON – In a story Feb. 20 about a men's basketball game between Fordham and George Washington, The Associated Press reported erroneously that the Colonials won their 500th game at the Charles E. Smith Center. The story should have said the Colonials played their 500th game at the Charles E. Smith Center.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Larsen, George Washington down Fordham 68-60
Larsen scores 15 points and George Washington hands Fordham 7th straight loss in 68-60 win
