WASHINGTON (AP) - A balanced scoring attack carried George Washington to a 87-70 victory over Fairfield Sunday afternoon as the Colonials had four starters score in double figures.
Pops Mensah-Bonsu lead George Washington with 20 points and 11 rebounds to earn his first double-double of the season. Also in double figures were J.R. Pinnock (18 points), Omar Williams (14 points), and Carl Elliott (11 points).
Overcoming a sloppy first 10 minutes of play by both squads, George Washington (2-1, 0-0 A-10) closed out the first half with a 35-10 run highlighted by an alley-oop reverse dunk by Pop Mensah-Bonsu off a T.J. Thompson pass.
Fairfield (2-2, 0-0 MAAC) struggled to break the Colonials perimeter in the first half, shooting only 17 percent and turning the ball over 12 times, leading to 12 fast break points for George Washington.
Stags outscored the Colonials 49-40 in the second half but could not make up the 26-point half time deficit. Terrance Todd led the Fairfield with 16 points and five assists. Deng Gai added 12 points and 8 rebounds.
