WASHINGTON, DC - George Washington fought back from as much as 16 points down, but couldn't complete the rally, giving up a late lead to fall to Georgetown.
GW (4-5) overcame an 11-point second half deficit, and held a two-point lead with 1:37 remaining when senior guard Lindsey Davidson converted her second-straight three-point field goal to give the Colonials a 63-61 edge.
The Hoyas (8-1) surged back behind a lay-up by Nok Duany and three-point shot by Mary Lisicky to regain a lead they would not give up in the closing seconds. The Colonials were forced to foul, and lost 70-65.
GW dropped their fourth-straight game since beating No. 21 BYU at the Smith Center on December 11. The Colonials shot 42.9% from the field, and outscored the Hoyas 34-30 in the second half.
