McKeown Earns 400th Victory as GW Cruises Past La Salle, 81-64
Monta?ana Tallies The School's Second Triple-Double
Jan. 31, 2004
WASHINGTON, DC - Joe McKeown became the 41st head coach in Division I history to win 400 games, when he won his 400th on Saturday, January 31, after the Colonials (14-5, 7-1) beat La Salle (10-9, 3-6), 81-64, to push their winning streak to six games. McKeown was the story on the bench, but junior Anna Monta?ana (Valencia, Spain/St. Maria El Pilar) was the story on the court, tallying the second triple-double in GW history with 11 points, 12 rebounds and 13 assists.
McKeown, in his 15th year at GW and 18th overall, is the school's all-time winningest coach. He started his career at New Mexico St. in 1986, winning 68 games in his three years there, and has won 332 games since coming to Foggy Bottom.
Monta?ana finally secured the triple-double she had been flirting with over the past couple of games after burying a three-pointer with 10:01 left in the second that pushed GW's lead to 14 points. The Colonials cruised from that point on to finish with the 17-point victory, while increasing their lead in the Atlantic 10's West division.
GW shot over 50 percent for the fourth time in their last five games. Senior Cathy Joens (Irvine, CA/Calvary Chapel) led the Colonials from the field with 22 points, followed by fellow-senior Ugo Oha (Houston, TX/Hastings), who scored 18 points for the third game in a row. Valerie Williams (Ft. Lauderdale, FL/Ft. Lauderdale) had another strong game off the bench, finishing with 12 points and five rebounds.
The Colonials will look to make it seven in a row, when they take on Fordham at Smith Center on Friday, February 6 at 7:00 p.m.
