Dec. 17, 2005
WASHINGTON (AP) - Danilo Pinnock scored 18 points to lead five George Washington players in double figures and the 15th-ranked Colonials beat Maryland-Eastern Shore 98-72 on Saturday.
Pops Mensah-Bonsu had 16 points, nine rebounds and three blocks for the Colonials (8-0), off to their best start since 1953-54 when they won their first 11 games.
George Washington took control with a 20-4 run midway through the first half. Hall's 3-pointer capped the spurt and gave the Colonials a 36-17 lead with 9:13 remaining.
Tim Parham led Maryland-Eastern Shore (2-8) with 21 points and nine rebounds and Antonio McMillion added 17 points and eight rebounds.
Omar Williams of George Washington and Qavotstaraj Waddell of Maryland-Eastern Shore were ejected with 4:20 remaining in the first half for leaving their benches during a scuffle that carried into the laps of spectators seated in the front row along the baseline. The altercation followed Art Valentine's intentional foul on Pinnock, who got up and charged Valentine. Several players spilled into the seats but no punches were thrown.
Mensah-Bonsu passed Ronnie Nunn for 31st place on the Colonials' career scoring list. Nunn, a veteran NBA referee, scored 1,068 points for George Washington from 1969-72. Early in the second half, Hall hit a 3-pointer to become the 37th 1,000-point scorer in school history.
