GW Women's Hoops Falls at Fordham, 66-56
Loss Snaps Colonials' Three-Game Win Streak
Feb. 13, 2013
BRONX, N.Y. - The George Washington women's basketball team saw its three-game winning streak snapped in a 66-56 loss at Atlantic 10 rival Fordham on Wednesday afternoon at the Rams' Rose Hill Gym.
Fordham (17-7, 7-2 A-10) scored the first six points of the game and never looked back, jumping out to a 37-9 lead after 13:40 of play before the Colonials scored nine in a row, sparked by a pair of jumpers and a three-pointer by senior Danni Jackson. Fordham led, 43-23, at halftime behind 54 percent shooting.
GW (11-13, 5-5 A-10) opened the second half with back-to-back triples by graduate student Tara Booker and Jackson, igniting a 12-5 run that made it 48-35, but a three-pointer by Fordham guard Arielle Collins curbed the spurt and the Rams were able to go back up by 24 with a 15-4 surge of their own.
The Colonials kept chipping away, however, scoring 17 of the game's final 20 points and fell by just 10, 66-56.
Marah Strickland led four Rams in double figures with a game-best 16 points, while Collins scored 15 on 4-of-7 shooting from beyond the arc, and she pulled down seven rebounds. Abigail Corning scored 14 points, and Erin Rooney tallied 13 and dished out nine assists.
The Rams shot 51.9 percent in the game, including 9-of-18 from three-point range. The Colonials finished at 38.1 percent from the floor and won the battle of the boards for the sixth straight game, outrebounding Fordham, 33-32, including 16-9 on the offensive glass.
The Colonials return to action on Sunday, when they visit Charlotte at 2 p.m.
