GW Pulls Away Late to Beat Dayton, 80-62
Joens Moves Into First on the All-Time Three-Point Field Goals List
Feb. 15, 2004
WASHINGTON, DC - Junior Anna Monta?ana (Valencia, Spain/St. Maria El Pilar) set a career high with 21 points and senior Valerie Williams (Ft. Lauderdale, Fl/Ft. Lauderdale) tied her career high with 19 points to help extend GW's winning streak to ten after defeating a depleted Dayton squad, 80-62, at Smith Center. The Flyers (3-21, 1-12), who only dressed seven players due to injury and illness, used some solid shooting throughout the first half and beginning of the second half to stay close, but the Colonials (18-5, 11-1) went on a 20-4 run late to secure the 18-point victory.
Senior Cathy Joens (Irvine, CA/Calvary Chapel) scored 17 points for the Colonials and moved into first place on the three-point field goals list, passing assistant coach Lisa Cermignano. Williams, who started in place of senior Ugo Oha (Houston, TX/Hastings), matched career highs in both points and minutes. She was 9-13 from the field to improve her already stellar 57 percent field goal percentage.
Oha had a great game off the bench, notching her fourth double-double of the season, with 17 points and 10 rebounds, while controlling the lane on the defensive end with five blocks and two steals.
GW shot over 50 percent for the fourth time in their last six games and won the battle of the boards 36-28. They dominated the paint, scoring 46 of their 80 points in the middle, while forcing 18 turnovers.
The Colonials will hit the road for the first two of a three game road trip when they take on Rhode Island on Friday, February 20 at 7:00 p.m. and then travel to Pittsburgh, PA to battle Duquesne on Sunday, February 22 at 2:00 p.m.
