Jan. 7, 2003
RICHMOND, VA - George Washington held off a second half charge by Richmond to win their Atlantic 10 Conference opener, 55-49.
The Colonials (6-5, 1-0) dominated play in the first half, holding the Spiders (9-3, 0-) just 21 points on 10-29 (.355) shooting. UR entered the game as the top offensive unit in the conference.
In contrast, GW shot well from the floor, making 13-23 shots, a 56.5% clip. Senior forward Erica Lawrence led the Colonials, scoring 10 points for the half, and GW took a 31-21 lead into the break.
The Spiders opened the second half with a 15-5 run through the first nine minutes, tying the game at 36 apiece with 11:07 left in the game. GW countered with a 6-0 run over the next three minutes to regain control of the game, not allowing the Spiders to capitalize on their early second half run.
The Colonials were led by Lawrence, who scored a game-high 16 points, and junior Ugo Oha who added 12 points and seven rebounds. UR's Kate Flavin scored a team-high fourteen points in the losing effort.
GW faces St. Bonaventure on Thursday, Jan. 9, in their second conference game at 7:00 p.m. at Smith Center.
