GW Women's Hoops Rebounds With 89-76 Win at UMass
Jones Posts Double-Double of 20 Points, 17 Rebounds
Jan. 29, 2014
AMHERST, Mass. - Sophomore Jonquel Jones posted her sixth double-double of the season with 20 points and a career-high 17 rebounds as the George Washington women's basketball team defeated Atlantic 10 rival Massachusetts, 89-76, on Wednesday afternoon at the Mullins Center.
With its 14th victory of the year, GW (14-7, 5-3 A-10) matches its season win total from 2012-13.
Jones made 8-of-14 attempts from the floor and added three blocks and two assists. Her 17 rebounds are the most by a Colonial since Brooke Wilson had 18 against Xavier on Feb. 8, 2012. Junior Chakecia Miller finished with 14 points and six assists, and graduate student Danni Jackson added 11 points and six helpers. Freshman Hannah Schaible finished a point shy of a double-double with nine points and 10 rebounds.
The Colonials went up 13-5 at the first media timeout as UMass (3-19, 0-8 A-10) made just two of its first 10 shots. GW used a 9-0 run midway through the half to take a double-digit lead, then scored the final nine points of the period, capped by a three-pointer by grad student Megan Nipe, for a 21-point halftime advantage, 51-30. With the Colonials' lead at 12 with 4:11 to go in the half, Jones scored eight straight points before Nipe's trey.
GW stretched its lead to a game-high 27 points, 61-34, on a three-point play by Jackson at the 17:15 mark of the second half. The Minutewomen chipped away at their deficit with free throws, connecting on 18-of-24 in the period, but seven straight points by freshman Shannon Cranshaw over a 91-second stretch in the final minutes put the game away.
Rashida Timbilla led five Minutewomen in double figures with 16 points, seven rebounds and four steals, while Jasmine Harris recorded 14 points and six assists.
GW dominated the boards, 60-35, and pulled down 28 offensive rebounds, including 11 by Jones. The 60 rebounds are the second-most this season after pulling down 61 against Bluefield State on Dec. 31.
The Colonials return to action on Saturday when they host Atlantic 10 rival Rhode Island at 2 p.m. at the Charles E. Smith Center.
