Men's Basketball Pulls Snow Job, Downs Richmond, 64-50, in Blizzard Game
Monroe's 14 Leads Colonials
Feb. 16, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - Chris Monroe scored a team-high 14 points for the Colonials (9-13, 3-8 Atlantic 10) to propell GW past Richmond, 64-50, Sunday afternoon at GW's Smith Center while more than a foot of snow piled up outside. Richmond's 50 points was a season-low for the GW defense. The win snapped a three-game losing skid for the Colonials and extended Richmond's losing string to a season-long four straight.
The Colonials closed out the first half on a 9-2 run for a 33-24 lead at halftime. GW began the second half with a 10-1 run for a 43-25 lead at the 14:18 mark and maintained a a 12- to 19-point cushion throughout the second half.
Mike Skrocki and Jamaal Scott led the visiting Spiders (12-10, 6-5 A-10) with 14 points each. Scott also had a team-high seven rebounds.
"We wanted to settle the game down a little bit and run the clock," GW coach Karl Hobbs said. "I didn't want our guys to take a shot 10 seconds into the possession even though a lane was there. One of the things I was proud of today was that, when we got the lead, we continued to play defense."
