Jan. 3, 2002
J.R. Bremer scored 28 points to lead the Bonnies.
George Washington took its largest lead of the game, 73-64, with five minutes remaining after a series of 3-pointers from T.J. Thompson, and another 3-pointer from Greg Collucci. Smith, a 6-8 center, took advantage of a St. Bonaventure team that doesn't start anyone taller than 6-6, and helped the Colonials keep the lead with a jump hook in the lane and a dunk off of a Collucci miss.
Smith finished the game with a game-high 14 rebounds. St. Bonaventure (8-4, 0-1), playing its fourth straight game on the road, could not overcome a balanced attack by George Washington (8-4, 1-0).
St. Bonaventure has now lost two straight games after upsetting Connecticut on Dec. 28.
Bremer and Monroe delivered in their matchup as two of the nation's top ten scorers. Monroe, a 6-3 guard tied for ninth in the nation averaging 23.3 points per game, scored most of his points with physical drives to the basket. He added 10 rebounds for his first double-double of the year.
Bremer, the second leading scorer in the nation at nearly 26 points per
game, hit three 3-pointers and a number of soft jumpers in the lane, although
it was not enough to overcome the Colonials.
