GW Women's Hoops Falls at Dayton, 90-69
Jones Posts Fourth Double-Double in Seven Games
Jan. 16, 2014
DAYTON, Ohio - Sophomore Jonquel Jones posted her fourth double-double in seven games, but the George Washington women's basketball team saw its eight-game win streak snapped in a 90-69 loss at preseason Atlantic 10 favorite Dayton on Thursday evening at UD Arena.
At 12-5 on the year, GW still boasts its best record through 17 games since 2007-08, while its 3-1 start to Atlantic 10 play is its best since 2008-09.
Jones scored 20 points and grabbed a game-high 13 rebounds while adding two blocks and two steals to lead the Colonials. Freshman Hannah Schaible also scored in double figures with 11 points to go with six boards.
With seven helpers, Jackson passed Anna Montañana for fourth place all-time at GW with 453 career assists.
The margin remained in single digits for most of the first half, but Dayton (10-4, 3-0 A-10) closed the period on an 8-2 run to take a 49-36 lead at the break.
GW came out strong to start the second half, scoring eight straight points to pull within seven, 53-46, at the 16:00 mark. A three-pointer by Kelly Austria ended Dayton's drought, and the teams traded baskets for the next four minutes before the Flyers began to pull away.
The Colonials shot 45.5 percent (15-33) in the second half and outrebounded Dayton, 42-41, in the game, including 15-10 on the offensive glass. The Flyers made 13 three-pointers in the game, with five each from Amber Deane and Andrea Hoover, who scored 23 points apiece. Hoover added six assists, while Deane pulled down eight rebounds.
The Colonials return to action on Saturday when they visit A-10 newcomer George Mason at 7 p.m. with a point in the Revolutionary Rivalry standings on the line.
