GW Extends Win Streak, Defeating Rhode Island, 60-56
Joens Goes For 32 Points
Feb. 20, 2004
KINGSTON, RI - Cathy Joens scored 32 points and Ugo Oha notched a double-double as George Washington held Rhode Island scoreless over the final two minutes to secure their 11th straight win, 60-56, on Friday, February 20 at the Ryan Center. The Colonials (19-5, 12-1) trailed at the half, but battled back and held Rhode Island (14-11, 7-7) to 30 percent shooting in the second half.
The lead changed hands 18 times over the course of the game, but the Colonials took the lead for good on a jumper by Joens with 4:10 left, 55-54. After making a foul shot to push the lead to two, the Colonials forced a turnover and Anna Monta?ana threw one of her patented baseball passes to Joens, who nailed a three from the left corner to seal the victory.
Joens had six three-pointers to go along with seven rebounds, while Oha picked up five blocks to go with her 12 points and 10 rebounds. Freshman Amanda LoCascio started for the first time in her career and added six points and two assists in 16 minutes.
Denise King led the Rams with 19 points, while Tanya Rhodes added 14 points and 11 rebounds, but GW held Rhode Island to just 32 percent shooting for the game.
The Colonials were outrebounded 43-32, which included 22 offensive rebounds for the Rams, and the Colonials had 23 turnovers, but they still found a way to come out on top, which will be crucial as they play two out of their final three games on the road.
GW heads to Pittsburgh, PA for a west division showdown with Duquesne on Sunday, February 22 at 2:00 p.m.
