NORMAN, Okla. - Katie Davis scored 24 points and Trish Juhline had 14 of her 16 in the second half as Villanova beat George Washington 70-57 in the Mideast Regional on Tuesday night.
The second-seeded Wildcats (27-5) reached the round of 16 for the first time in seven NCAA tournament appearances. They will play Colorado on Saturday in the regional semifinals in Knoxville, Tenn.
Villanova, which averages nearly nine 3-pointers per game, had a tough time getting good shots from the perimeter in the first half. Then the Wildcats missed their first four shots of the second half before getting six 3s in a span of 4? minutes to take control.
Davis had three of the long-range shots and Juhline, just 1-for-8 from the field in the first half, added two as the Wildcats took a 47-35 lead with just under 12 minutes remaining.
Ugo Oha, who finished with 21 points, scored 10 straight points for the seventh-seeded Colonials (25-7) to keep them within range at 53-44. Then Jennifer Hilgenberg made a 3-pointer to start a 9-2 run that pushed the lead to 16 with 4:14 to play.
Oha had just four points at halftime because she got her second foul and sat down with 12:25 left.
