GW Blows Past Richmond, 69-48
Oha Moves Into First Place on the All-Time Blocked Shots List
Feb. 8, 2004
RICHMOND, VA - Senior Cathy Joens (Irvine, CA/Calvary Chapel) scored 31 points, including a school record eight three-pointers, to lead George Washington (16-5, 8-1) past Richmond (13-8, 5-5), 69-48, for the second time this season on Sunday, February 6 at Robins Center. The victory stretched the Colonials win streak to eight and firmly entrenched them at the top of the Atlantic 10 West division.
Junior Anna Monta?ana (Valencia, Spain/St. Maria El Pilar) finished just three assists shy of another triple-double with 15 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists. On the defensive end, senior Ugo Oha (Houston, TX/Hastings) tied Tajama Abraham for first on the career blocked shots list with an emphatic rejection late in the game.
Unlike the past couple of games, the Colonials jumped on Richmond from the opening whistle with a 12-2 run and never looked back. Joens nailed six of her three-pointers in the first half and the Colonials shot 50 percent to take a 39-22 lead at the break.
Richmond made a run midway through the second half and cut the lead to nine, 53-44, with 9:24 left, but the Colonials turned up the defense and only allowed the Spiders to score four more points.
GW held Richmond to 30 percent shooting from the field including 1-13 from the three-point line. The Colonials did a great job controlling the tempo of the game as well, setting a season low with only nine turnovers, while forcing Richmond into 18.
Next, the Colonials host the first of two games versus the Ohio schools when Xavier visits Smith Center on Friday, February 13 at 7:00 p.m.
