Jan. 30, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - George Washington held La Salle to just six second-half field goals, and an anemic 33% from the field for the game to run away with their ninth consecutive victory and remain undefeated in Atlantic 10 Conference play.
GW (13-5, 7-0) never trailed, opening the game with a 7-0 run and dominating play. LU (11-8, 3-5) shot well from the field in the first half, but was unable to keep the Colonials off the boards allowing them to score 11 second-chance points off 13 offensive rebounds. GW also forced the Explorers into 11 turnovers, converting them into 12 points in the half to help the Colonials take a 42-28 halftime lead.
GW stormed out of the gate in the second half, and essentially sealed the game with an 18-0 run over the first seven minutes to take a 60-28 lead with 13:36 remaining on the clock. LU would not recover, as the Colonials shot 53.6% (15-28) from the floor to close out the game.
Senior guard Cathy Joens scored 18 points on 7-14 shooting, including hitting 4-7 from beyond the arc in just 22 minutes of play. Junior Ugo Oha added an additional 18 points on 8-13 shooting from the floor and collected five rebounds for the game. Junior forward Valerie Williams added 12 points and sophomore forward Anna Monta?ana chipped in 13 points on 5-9 shooting. Senior guard Lindsey Davidson distributed a season-high seven assists in the winning effort.
The Colonials host Rhode Island in their next game on Sunday, February 2, at 12:00 p.m.
