WASHINGTON, DC - George Washington (10-5, 3-1) used an early 26-2 run on their way to an 86-60 victory, while handing Richmond (12-4, 4-1) their first conference loss of the season and ending their six-game winning streak. Senior Cathy Joens (Irvine, CA/Calvary) led all scorers with 22 behind six three-pointers, while fellow senior Marsheik Witherspoon (Opa-Locka, FL/American Senior) tallied a career-high 16 points on 7-8 shooting.

Richmond's Kate Flavin had 15 points to put her over the 1,000-point mark, but the Spiders couldn't solve GW's intense defense, which held Richmond to just 14 points in the first half. Richmond made a late push, but couldn't overcome the hole GW put them in.

The Colonials shot 69 percent in the first half and 64 percent (37-58) for the game, most of which was set up by junior Anna Monta?ana, who had 11 assists to go along with ten rebounds. GW also got production off of the bench from senior Valerie Williams (Ft. Lauderdale, FL/Ft. Lauderdale), who had 10 points, and freshman Corinne Turner (Glen Cove, NY/Christ the King), who set a career high with 15 points.

GW will look to make it two-in-a-row in conference when they take on La Salle at 1:00 pm on Sunday, January 18 in Philadelphia, PA.
