PHILADELPHIA, PA - George Washington won the battle of Atlantic 10 division leaders, handing Saint Joseph's their first conference loss of the season, topping the Hawks 77-67.
The Colonials (11-5, 6-0) and Hawks (10-7, 5-1) battled through a first half that saw 10 lead changes and seven ties. GW was led by Joens who hit four threes on her way to 16 points for the half. Oha added 10 points and two blocks, as the Colonials forced SJU into 12 turnovers in the first half.
The Hawks adjusted on the defensive side of the ball, keying in on Joens in the second half. GW responded with strong post play, as Oha scored 12 second half points and junior forward Valerie Williams added 14 points on 7-7 shooting in just 12 minutes of play. Williams scored eight points in the final five minutes to help GW hold off SJU in the closing moments of the game.
GW used a balanced attack in the post and on the perimeter, as senior guard Cathy Joens and junior center Ugo Oha scored 21 and 22 points respectively. The Hawks were led by Erin Brady who scored 20 points and Maura McBryan who chipped in 13 in the losing effort.
