GW Women's Hoops Falls at St. Bonaventure, 74-64
Jones, Schaible Each Post Double-Doubles in Loss
Feb. 26, 2014
ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. - Sophomore Jonquel Jones and freshman Hannah Schaible each posted double-doubles, but the George Washington women's basketball team fell to Atlantic 10 rival St. Bonaventure, 74-64, on Wednesday evening at the Reilly Center.
Jones finished with 19 points and a game-high 14 rebounds and added three blocks while Schaible tallied 11 points and a career-high 11 boards. Graduate student Danni Jackson was the third Colonial in double figures with 13 points on three 3-pointers.
GW (19-9, 10-5 A-10) trailed by 12 after SBU's Chelsea Bowker hit a three with 5:59 left in the first half, but Schaible sparked a 9-3 run to end the period with all seven of her first-half points and five rebounds. St. Bonaventure (22-8, 11-4 A-10) led 30-24 at the break.
After the Bonnies regained a double-digit lead early in the second half, a three pointer by Jones ignited a 13-4 GW run, and a layup by freshman Shannon Cranshaw at the 12:41 mark pulled the Colonials within four, 44-40. Bowker, however, halted the GW rally with another three-pointer, and the Bonnies scored seven straight points to regain an 11-point lead. St. Bonaventure then made 12 straight free throws down the stretch to seal the win.
Nyla Rueter led the Bonnies with a game-high 22 points powered by a pair of threes and a perfect 10-for-10 performance at the foul line. Katie Healy had 18 points on 5-of-10 from the floor and 8-of-10 from the line, and Bowker finished with 15 points on four treys.
GW outrebounded St. Bonaventure, 45-29, including 20-2 on the offensive glass, which led to a 26-2 advantage in second-chance points. Schaible and Jones combined for 11 offensive boards.
GW concludes the regular season on Saturday when they host No. 21 Dayton at 2 p.m., at the Charles E. Smith Center. With a win over the Flyers, who already clinched the A-10 regular-season title, the Colonials would earn a top-four seed in next week's Atlantic 10 Championship and a bye through to the quarterfinals. Prior to the game, the Colonials will honor grad students Jackson, Megan Nipe and Brooke Wilson in a Senior Day ceremony.
