Jan. 29, 2004
WASHINGTON, DC - George Washington matched its longest winning streak of the season at five with an 88-71 victory over Duquesne on Thursday, January 29. Senior Cathy Joens (Irvine, CA/Calvary Chapel) led all scorers with a season-high 32 points to go along with nine rebounds and five assists. Junior Anna Monta?ana (Valencia, Spain/St. Maria El Pilar) had another outstanding all around game, coming up just one assist shy of a triple-double, with 14 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists.
Duquesne jumped out to an early 11-5 lead, but GW took the lead at 22-21 with 7:24 left in the first half, and never trailed again. Senior Ugo Oha (Houston, TX/Hasting) was dominant in the paint, scoring 18 points and grabbing nine rebounds to go along with five blocks. She got help from her running mate Valerie Williams (Ft. Lauderdale, FL/Ft. Lauderdale), who scored 15 points on 7-9 from the field.
Joens had a fantastic night shooting the ball, going 8-13 from the field including 5-8 from the three-point line and shooting 11-13 from the free throw line. Meanwhile, Duquesne's leading scorer, Candace Futrell, scored 29 points, but took 31 shots in the process.
The Colonials, as a team, shot 51.7 percent (31-60) from the field, while holding Duquesne to 38.7 percent (29-75). GW also held the advantage on the boards, outrebounding the Dukes 47-31.
The win put GW head coach Joe McKeown just one shy of his 400th coaching victory. The Colonials will try to get him to that milestone when they face La Salle on Saturday, January 31 at 4:00 p.m. at Smith Center.
