Feb. 19, 2005
WASHINGTON (AP) - T.J. Thompson's 15 points, 4 assists and 4 steals led George Washington to a 80-57 win over Duquesne to remain alone atop the A-10 West.
The Colonials shot 45 percent from the field, scoring 48 points inside, getting 39 points from the bench and finished with four players in double figures (Thompson 15, Omar Williams 15, Pops Mensah-Bonsu 13, J.R. Pinnock 12) in their fifth-straight win.
After a competitive first half, George Washington (17-5, 9-3) outscored Duquesne 26-9 in the first ten minutes of the second half to take a 65-38 lead with 9:30 remaining on an explosive Pinnock dunk, taking the life out of the Dukes.
A sloppy start to the game left first-place George Washington down 4-9 to the last-place Dukes. The Colonials moved ahead at the 14:05 mark after a Thompson steal and downcourt pass to Maureece Rice, whose no-look backpass found Pinnock resulting in a slam, free throw and 10-9 lead that was never relinquished.
With Duquesne (6-19, 3-9) keeping the pressure on, George Washington hung onto the lead, extending to 10 points going into halftime after four Thompson free throws in the final 57 seconds of play in the half.
Bryant McAllister, coming off a 4-point game made it to double figures in the first half and finished with 12 points to lead a Duquesne team in the midst of a five-game losing streak. Jack Higgins added 10 for the Dukes.
