Nov. 15, 2004
WINSTON-SALEM, NC - GW opened the season in one of the toughest places possible, on the road at the home of second-ranked Wake Forest in the Preseason N.I.T. GW stayed with the Demon Deacons for about 32 minutes and trailed 75-70 with 8:57 remaining before Wake Forest All-American Chris Paul took over and put the game away.
GW's T.J. Thompson scored 16 points and hit five 3-pointers to lead George Washington. Despite Thompson's hot shooting, the Colonials fell to the Demon Deacons, 97-76 in the Preseason N.I.T. first-round game.
Paul scored 25 points and had six assists to carry the Demon Deacons. Wake Forest led by 14 points early in the second half, but struggled to put away the Colonials (0-1). George Washington hit eight 3-pointers to hang around, closing to 75-70 on a 3 from Carl Elliott midway through the second half.
The Colonials got no closer than 11 points the rest of the way.
Wake struggled with the Colonials' halfcourt traps and had trouble stopping dribble penetration. They also went just 22-for-34 from the line and committed 20 turnovers.
