Poor Shooting Plagues Colonials in 66-57 Loss to Hampton
Colonials Fall to 2-2 in NIT Season Tip-Off
Nov. 23, 2010
WASHINGTON, DC -- George Washington shot a season-low 28.8 percent in dropping a 62-51 decision to visiting Hampton in a consolation-round game of the 2010 Dick's Sporting Goods NIT Season Tip-Off Tuesday at Charles E. Smith Center.
Junior Tony Taylor was the lone Colonial in double figure scoring with 12 points on 4-10 shooting from the field. After managing to take a 24-23 lead at the break, the Colonials took their largest lead of the game 34-28 on a layup by Joseph Katuka (8 points) with 13:47 remaining. GW still held a 41-39 lead three minutes later before the Pirates put together a game-changing 15-0 run over the next eight minutes. GW's Bryan Bynes finally broke the Colonials' scoring drought with a layup at the 1:38 mark. By then however, GW was staring at a 54-43 deficit.
The Colonials managed to cut the deficit to seven (58-51) after Taylor was fouled while shooting a three-pointer and converted 2-3 free throws. A Dwayne Smith put-back off the missed free throw got the Colonials to within seven at 58-51 with 34 seconds showing. Forced to foul at that point, the Pirates converted 4-4 free throws down the stretch to win their fourth straight game.
Hampton (4-1) blocked eight Colonials shots but GW dominated the boards and outrebounded the Pirates, 45-35 including a 22-7 advantage on the offensive end. Darrion Pellum led the Pirates with 18 points while teammate Kwame Morgan added a 14-point, 10-rebound double-double.
GW (2-2) next hosts UNC Wilmington (2-2) Monday, Nov. 29 at 7 p.m. at Smith Center. In Tuesday's early game, Boston University defeated Nevada, 66-57, also at GW's Smith Center.
