Feb 9, 2002
WASHINGTON (AP) - David Hawkins scored a career-high 28 points and Lynn Greer added 25 as Temple beat George Washington 80-58 Saturday.
Chris Monroe was the only George Washington player to reach double figures, finishing with 18 points.
Temple (10-12, 7-3 Atlantic 10) never trailed and dominated the Colonials in every facet of the game to win their fourth straight.
The Owls caused 20 turnovers and limited the Colonials to just 33 percent shooting. George Washington didn't score during the last 8:34 of the first half and trailed by as many as 27 points with 13 minutes remaining.
George Washington (10-12, 3-8) has lost seven straight, all in conference play, and are in the midst of their worst losing streak in 12 seasons.
Temple led 33-15 at halftime, controlling the tempo and using their trademark matchup zone defense to stifle the Colonials. Hawkins, Greer and Nile Murry consistently had open looks from 3-point range and combined to score 26 of the Owl's first-half points.
The Colonials continued their struggles in the first half of play. Following
a 20-point, 29 percent shooting performance in their last game against La
Salle, George Washington hit a new low - 15 points and 18 percent shooting
against the Owls for their worst output of the season. The Colonials missed all
13 of their first-half 3-point attempts and Greg Collucci, the team's
second-leading scorer and best 3-point shooter, missed all seven of his shots
from long range.
