March 3, 2002
PHILADELPHIA, PA (March 2, 2002) - The Colonials made an early exit from the Atlantic 10 Tournament, as Xavier edged George Washington 67-64 to move on to the semifinals.
Xavier guard Amy Waugh tied a championship record with seven three-pointer's, including five in the second half, as the Musketeers downed top-seeded the top-seeded Colonials in the first game of the quarterfinal round of the 2002 Verizon Atlantic 10 Women's Basketball Championship at The Liacouras Center on the campus of Temple University.
With the scored tied at 43-43, Waugh nailed her second three-point field goal of the second half to give the Musketeers (12-18) a 46-43 lead with 9:48 remaining in the game. She finished with a game-high 23 points, including 7-of-13 from beyond the arc, and became just the third player in tournament history to make seven three pointers in one game, joining Melissa Coursey of Saint Joseph's (1999) and Suzie Dailer of St. Bonaventure (1993). XU's win marked the first time a No. 1 seed lost in the quarterfinals since 1992, when Duquesne defeated West Virginia, 63-62.
Sophomore center Ugo Oha led GW (20-8) with 19 points and 10 rebounds, her fourth double-double of the season. The Colonials saw their streak of 10 consecutive appearances in the Atlantic 10 semifinals come to an end. Juniors Cathy Joens and Erica Lawrence scored 12 points apiece, and Lindsey Davidson recorded a season-high nine assists in the losing effort.
