Feb. 26, 2004
AMHERST, MA - George Washington trailed by one at the half, but forced UMass into two four-minute dry spells in the second half and cruised to a 70-51 victory on Thursday, February 26 at Mullins Center. Cathy Joens, who moved into third-place on GW's all-time scoring list, led the Colonials (20-6, 13-2) with 22 points, including six three-pointers.
Both teams got off to a sluggish start and the Colonials fell behind by seven with just under 13 minutes to go in the half. The teams battled back and forth including five lead changes until UMass went up by four on a three-pointer with five seconds left. But, Marsheik Witherspoon pushed the ball up quickly and buried a three from just past half court to give GW a lift going into the locker room.
The Colonials came out in the second half on fire, making their first five three-pointers to blow the game open. They also kept UMass from scoring from 12:56 to 9:39 and then again from 7:59 to 3:30.
Anna Monta?ana scored 13 points and grabbed nine rebounds while Valerie Williams, starting for the second time this season, scored 16 and grabbed five rebounds. Edris Bailey led the Minutewomen (6-20, 2-13) with 15 points and 12 rebounds.
The victory sets up a showdown with Temple at 12:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 29. The winner will get the number one seed in the Atlantic 10 Tournament being held in Philadelphia, PA on March 5-8.
