Dec. 5, 2006
WASHINGTON (AP) -- George Washington's Maureece Rice scored 20 points to lead the Colonials to a 79-56 win over Maryland-Eastern Shore Tuesday night.
The Colonials (6-1) made seven of their first 11 shots to start the second half and pulled away to seal their 18th straight home win.
The Colonials' Rob Diggs had 12 of his 16 points in the second half. Diggs, who had a career-high seven blocks, had a dunk with 17:10 left in the game that gave GW a 43-33 lead, and the Hawks never threatened after that.
Antonio McMillion had 19 points and a game-high 11 rebounds for Maryland-Eastern Shore (1-4), who are 0-3 against GW in the series.
Sophomore Cheyenne Moore, a transfer from Clemson, made his first career appearance for GW when he entered the game with 14:54 left in the first half. He scored two points. GW made just nine of its first 26 shots, but hit three of four field goal tries in the closing minutes of the first half to take a 33-29 halftime lead.
The Colonials took the lead for the first time at 21-20 on a basket by Damian Hollis with 4:55 left in the first half. Hollis entered the game with eight points in six games, but he made all four shots and had eight points.
Rice put the Colonials ahead to stay at 28-27 on a three-pointer with 1:23 left before halftime.
GW was playing two days after a last-second win against Virginia Tech. Regis Koundjia added 13 points for the hosts, and his basket and free throw gave GW a 70-48 lead with 5:10 remaining.
