WASHINGTON, DC (AP) -Whitney Allen tied a career high with 16 points and Antelia Parrish added 15 to help No. 20 George Washington rout Brown 98-22 on Sunday.

It was the largest margin of victory in school history for GW, and Brown set school marks for worst loss and fewest points in a game.

Jessica Adair and reserve Jazmine Adair had 13 points apiece and Sarah-Jo Lawrence scored 11 for George Washington (12-3), which tied a school record with 13 3-pointers in its seven straight win.

Parrish went 5-for-5 from 3-point range in the first half and George Washington led 51-11 at halftime.

Annesley O'Neal had a team-high seven points for Brown (1-13), who lost its sixth straight game in its first meeting against GW.

The Colonials led 23-0 midway through the first half as Brown missed its first 10 shots from the field and had four turnovers. Ashley Alexander, in her first career start, scored Brown's first basket to make it 23-2 with 12:00 left in the first half.

Kimberly Beck's 3-pointer gave the hosts a 70-17 lead midway through the second half and Colonials coach Joe McKeown cleared the bench seconds later.

GW has won 10 straight games against Ivy League teams dating to 1980.

Brown had 30 turnovers and went 1-for-16 from 3-point range.

NOTES: The 76-point margin of victory is the largest in Atlantic 10 history, topping former league member Rutgers' 108-33 victory over Duquesne on Jan. 9, 1988 ... GW's 66.7 percent shooting broke the single-game school record of 64.2 percent versus William & Mary in 1985 ... GW's 98 points are the most scored since a 100-57 victory against Mount St. Mary's on Dec. 17, 2000.
