Jan. 5, 2004
DAYTON, OH - George Washington went two-for-two on their Ohio road trip after beating Dayton, 71-51, on Monday, January 5. The Colonials (8-4, 2-0) were led by senior Cathy Joens (Irvine, CA/Calvary), who scored 19 points, while shooting 7-13 and 3-6 from the three. Junior Liz Dancause (Nashua, NH/Nashua) set a career high with 12 points and also chipped in six rebounds to help GW to their 16th win in 16 tries versus Dayton. The Flyers (2-11, 0-2) battled and were led by Katie Butler, who had 14 points, but the Flyers were held to 30% shooting from the field on the evening.
GW let Dayton hang around and the Flyers were down by only 10 with 17:15 left in the game, but the Colonials went on a 10-0 run to break the game open again. They cruised from that point forward and finished with the 20 point victory. Junior Anna Monta?ana (Valencia, Spain/St. Maria El Pilar) had a fantastic game for GW with 13 points and nine rebounds, while reigning Atlantic 10 Player of the Week, Ugo Oha, put up a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds.
The Colonials held their eighth opponent in the last 10 games to under 55 points, while pressuring the seventh team so far this season to under 35% shooting. GW was outrebounded by the Flyers 49-42, which is a growing trend that will have to be addressed as the team moves through conference play.
George Washington will look to make it three-in-a-row when they host Saint Joseph's at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 10 at Smith Center. The game will be aired on ESPN 2.
