Women's Basketball Swamps Gators, 74-55
Oha Leads Colonials With 17
Jan. 26, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - George Washington extended its win streak to eight games, as the Colonials topped the visiting Florida Gators 74-55 in their final non-conference game of the season.
GW (12-5) dominated play for the majority of the game, forcing the UF (8-10) into 23 turnovers. The Colonials scored 28 points off the Gators' miscues, and capitalized on the inexperience of UF's all-freshman starting line-up.
The Gators kept the game close through the first ten minutes, as the two teams stood deadlocked at 10-10, midway through the half. GW reeled off a 22-12 run over the last ten minutes, punctuated by a buzzer-beating three from senior guard Lindsey Davidson that gave the Colonials a 32-22 halftime lead.
GW carried that momentum into the second half, outscoring UF 29-13 to extend its lead to 26 points with 7:24 left in the game. Coach Joe McKeown substituted liberally in the final minutes, as the Gators closed the gap to 19, and GW cruised to a 74-55 victory.
Junior center Ugo Oha scored 17 points and added four blocks to lead four Colonials in double figures. Senior Cathy Joens scored 14 and Davidson and sophomore Greeba Outen Barlow added 11 points apiece.
Bernice Mosby scored 17 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lead the Gators, while guard Sarah Lowe contributed 12 points in 35 minutes of play.
GW faces Atlantic 10 foe LaSalle, as the Colonials return to conference play at home on Thursday, Jan. 30, in a 7:00 p.m. game.
