GW Women's Hoops Falls to Dayton in A-10 Semifinals
Jackson Leads Colonials With 19 Points
March 8, 2014
RICHMOND, Va. - Graduate student Danni Jackson scored 19 points, but the fourth-seeded George Washington basketball team was knocked out of the Atlantic 10 Championship with an 89-68 loss to top-seeded Dayton in Saturday's semifinals at the Richmond Coliseum.
Jackson added seven assists against the Flyers to give her 185 on the season and move her into third place on GW's single-season list. Kimberly Beck ('08) set the program record at 205 in 2007-08.
Freshman Hannah Schaible posted her third double-double of the season with 12 points and 10 rebounds, making all 10 of her free throw attempts, while grad student Megan Nipe added 11 points and sophomore Jonquel Jones pulled down a game-high 13 rebounds to go with six points, three assists and three blocks.
Ranked 24th in the nation, Dayton (23-6) led, 39-25, at halftime and extended its lead to 16 early in the second half before a three-pointer by Nipe sparked a 12-4 run to slice the deficit to single digits at 49-40. The Flyers, however, curbed the spurt with back-to-back buckets from Amber Deane and Adrijana Cvitkovic and went on to score 20 of the next 24 points for a game-high 74-48 lead with 7:11 to go.
A-10 Player of the Year Andrea Hoover led Dayton with 22 points and eight rebounds, while Ally Malott tallied 19 points and nine boards and Cvitkovic finished with 11 points, nine rebounds and three assists.
After advancing to the A-10 semifinals for the first time since 2008, GW (21-10) will learn its postseason fate on the evening of Monday, March 17.
