Feb. 7, 2003
DAYTON, OH - Cathy Joens scored her 1,000th career point as George Washington extended their win-streak to 11 games and remained undefeated in Atlantic 10 play with a 80-53 victory over the Dayton Flyers.
GW (15-5, 9-0) stormed out to a 19-9 lead in the first nine minutes to establish the pace early in the game. The Colonials denied the Flyers (12-9, 5-4) any inside scoring, as junior Ugo Oha blocked three shots to set the tone.
UD depended on their outside shooting to keep them in the game, as junior guard Stephanie Miller accounted for the bulk of the Flyers' scoring, pouring in ten of UD's 21 points in the first half as the Colonials took a 41-21 lead into the break.
Senior Cathy Joens led all scorers with 12 points at the half, and the Colonials shot 67% (16-24) and held the Flyers to 26% (8-31) from the floor. UD's 21 points was the second-lowest total for the first half for the Flyers this season.
A 14-4 run to start the second half by GW prompted a timeout by UD, as the Colonials extended their lead to 55-25, with 14:56 remaining in the game. The Flyers would make a run at the Colonials lead behind 13 second-half points from reserve freshman Nastassia Alcius, cutting GW's lead to 16 with 6:25 remaining in the game.
The Colonials held off the charging Flyers, and Joens made it a 20-point lead, 69-49 at the 4:22 mark with a three-point shot that gave her 1,001 points in her three-year career. Coach Joe McKeown emptied the bench with two minutes remaining in the game and the Colonials secured the victory, 80-53.
Senior Ugo Oha led GW with 18 points adding six boards and four blocks. Joens notched 17 and sophomore Anna Montanana added 11 in the winning effort. Senior Lindsey Davidson had a solid game with eight points, five rebounds and six assists.
The Colonials travel to Cincinnati, OH to face the Xavier Musketeers in a 2:00 p.m. game.
