Colonials Roll To 69-52 Victory Over Binghampton
Chris Monroe leads men's hoops with 22 points.
Nov 23, 2001
WASHINGTON (AP) - Chris Monroe, George Washington's leading scorer, did not start the game due to an undisclosed team violation, but came off the bench to score 22 points and lead the Colonials to a 69-52 victory over Binghamton in the second game of the Red Auerbach Colonial Classic.
Jeffrey St. Fort scored 16 points and Stanley Ocitti added 12 for the Bearcats.
George Washington (2-2) will meet Yale in the championship game, and Binghamton (1-2) will face Stony Brook in the consolation.
Monroe, a 6-3 guard, entered the game after sitting the first two minutes and immediately made an impact with four of the team's next eight points.
He was relentless around the basket with a team-high eight rebounds and consistently got to the free throw line.
Twice in the second half Monroe was fouled on strong drives through the lane, converting both the basket and the ensuing free throw.
Overall, the Colonials shot 35 foul shots-making 26- and forced Binghamton into 22 turnovers.
The Colonials never trailed beyond the 7:28 mark of the first half.
Binghamton stymied the Colonial offense early, and after Ocitti hit two straight 3-pointers and added a tip-in, the Bearcats had completed an 11-2 run for an 18-13 lead.
George Washington regrouped and retook the lead 24-23 when Darrio Scott stole a pass at midcourt and raced uncontested for a two-hand dunk.
Binghamton tied the score at 31-31 after Jeffrey St. Fort scored all eight
points in an 8-2 run, but was never able to re-take the lead.
