Jan. 3, 2007
George Washington (9-3, 1-0) won its 20th straight home game, and coach Karl Hobbs, in his sixth season, won his 100th game for the Colonials.
Junior Marcus Stout had 15 points for Fordham (7-6, 0-1) to give him 1,001 in his career. Stout reached the 1,000-point mark on a layup with 4:42 left in the game, but by then the Colonials led 60-48.
George Washington made just 13 of 26 free throws in the first half, but still led 33-25 as Fordham made 12 turnovers and missed all 10 of its 3-point tries.
The Colonials pulled away after halftime. Rob Diggs' dunk off a long outlet pass gave them a 58-42 lead with 8:05 remaining, and Fordham never threatened down the stretch.
Fordham coach Dereck Whittenburg, a Washington native, is now 0-6 lifetime against George Washington.
Washington Mayor Adrian M. Fenty, whose inauguration was Wednesday, got a standing ovation as he took a seat in the third row midway through the first half.
