Women's Basketball Crushes Flyers, 89-52
Joens Scores 25 in Blowout
Feb. 20, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - George Washington cruised to its twelfth conference victory, clinching a first round bye in the Atlantic 10 Tournament and at least the second seed in the West Division in an 89-52 over Dayton in a one-sided affair at Smith Center.
GW (18-6, 12-1) jumped out to an early lead on UD (13-12, 6-8) opening the game with a 7-0 run, and extended the lead to as much as 10 just seven minutes into the game, 16-6. The Flyers countered with a 12-4 run that tied the game 20-20 at the 8:12 mark. Head coach Joe McKeown called a quick timeout, and GW responded with 22-6 run to close out the half, that gave the Colonials a 42-26 lead at the break.
UD, who lost to GW 80-53 earlier this season, was unable to break the constant pressure by the Colonial defense, turning the ball over 25 times, which GW converted into 43 points. The Flyers would never get closer than 12 points the rest of the way, as the Colonials shot a torrid 56.3% (18-32) from the field in the second half, while limiting UD to just 38.5% (10-26).
The Colonials entered the game ranked third nationally in assists per game, distributing 19.2 per game. GW continued this trend against Dayton, recording 25 assists on 35 field goals. Senior Cathy Joens, one of four players who scored in double figures for GW, netted a game-high 25 points, adding six rebounds and steals and three assists in 31 minutes of play.
Junior center Ugo Oha scored 15 points with eight rebounds while sophomore Anna Monta?ana added 12 points with five boards and three assists. Senior Erica Lawrence came off the bench to chip in 10 points and grab four rebounds. Cyndi Stull led the Flyers with 18 points and six rebounds, and was the only UD player in double-figures.
GW travels to Philadelphia, PA to face La Salle on Sunday, February 23, in a 1:00 p.m. game.
