GW Bounced From A-10 Tournament By Saint Joseph's, 70-57
Oha Scores Game High 21 Points
March 7, 2004
PHILADELPHIA, PA - Ugo Oha scored 21 points, but it wasn't enough as Saint Joseph's knocked GW out of the Atlantic 10 Tournament, 70-57, on Sunday, March 7. The defending Atlantic 10 champions entered the tournament as the number one overall seed, but 38 percent shooting and 12 key offensive rebounds by the Hawks doomed GW.
Saint Joseph's stretched their lead to 12 with just under 12 minutes left in the second half, but the Colonials clawed their way back and cut the lead to four with just under six minutes to play. Just when the Colonials were poised to take back the lead, Erin Brady banked in a runner as the shot clock expired and Irina Krasnoshiok buried a three from the corner to push the lead back to nine. GW couldn't recover and the Hawks advanced to play Temple in the finals on Monday, March 8.
The major difference in the game came from behind the three-point line with Saint Joseph's going 9-19, while the Colonials only managed 2-12. Oha did a great job in the paint with her 21 points, but the other two members of the big three, Anna Monta?ana and Cathy Joens, only managed 10 points apiece. Marsheik Witherspoon played another solid game at the point for GW with eight points and four assists.
The Colonials outscored Saint Joseph's 36-20 in the paint, but the Hawks scored eight more second-chance points and had a major edge in bench points thanks to 18 points from Krasnoshiok.
GW will now wait to see if they receive an at-large bid to play in the Women's NCAA Tournament. The selection show will be held on Sunday, March 14.
