Feb. 4, 2004
WASHINGTON - As George Washington cruised to a 102-78 victory over St. Bonaventure Wednesday night, the only suspense was how many players would finish the game with career high statistics.
First up was freshman Carl Elliott, who posted a career and Smith Center high with 14 assists on the night -- just one short of the George Washington record. Ukrainian Alexander Kireev, starting only his third game of the season, set a career high for points with 12.
Finally, freshman J.R. Pinnock tied his career-best scoring with 21 points to lead George Washington's lethal attack. Six players reached double figures as the Colonials took the lead on their first possession and never relinquished it, dominating St. Bonaventure in bench points 53-10 and points in the paint 44-16.
Marques Green, who entered the game ranked 14th in the nation in scoring with an average of 22 points per game, led the Bonnies with 21 points and four assists. Ahmad Smith added 18 points, including four 3-pointers on 7-10 shooting.
George Washington (12-8, 6-3) remains in second place in the Atlantic-10 West and stays unbeaten at home this season with a 9-0 record. Meanwhile, St. Bonaventure (6-13, 2-6) moves to 5th place in the east and is winless on the road, coming up on the losing end of all eight games.
