Nov. 6, 2004
WASHINGTON, DC - Senior Jessica Simmonds netted a game-high 21 points, but it wasn't enough as the George Washington women's basketball team lost to Everyone's Internet, 69-64, in an exhibition game on Saturday, Nov. 6 at the Smith Center.
Simmonds, who transferred from Providence and sat out all of last season, was 7-of-14 from the field and connected on 7-of-9 free-throws. She also contributed six rebounds and made two steals. Senior All-America candidate Anna Montañana stuffed the stat sheet with 14 points, six boards, seven assists, two blocks and two steals. Sophomore Corinne Turner added 10 points for the Colonials.
GW led, 54-53, with 5:17 left to play, but Everyone's Internet went on a 10-4 run to take a 63-58 advantage with 2:53 remaining. A Montañana basket got GW within three, 63-60, at 2:40, but that's as close as the Colonials would get.
Felicia Ragland led Everyone's Internet with 18 points, including four three-pointers. She also grabbed nine rebounds. Kesha Wastson added 14 points, while former Maryland standout Dee Dee Warley and South Carolina alum Jocelynn Penn notched eight points each. Penn also contributed nine rebounds. The victory improves Everyone's Internet's record to 4-1 on their exhibition tour across the United States. Second-ranked LSU is the only team to defeat the squad this season.
Simmonds tallied the Colonials' first six points, but Everyone's Internet led, 17-12, with 9:32 left in the opening half. GW reeled off five straight points, including a layup by freshman Kimberly Beck to knot the score, 17-17, at the 7:50 mark and the Colonials owned a 30-28 lead at the half.
Everyone's Internet began the second frame with a 7-2 scoring spurt, capped by a Ragland three, to take a five-point advantage, 37-32, at 15:42. Everyone's Internet led by as many as six before a Turner layup gave GW the lead, setting the stage for the final minutes.
Freshman Sarah-Jo Lawrence earned a start in the contest and scored four points and pulled down six caroms. Beck contributed six points and three steals.
Everyone's Internet was 7-of-15 from beyond the three-point arc, while the Colonials were 0-for-3. Everyone's Internet was also 16-of-18 from the free-throw line. GW connected on 20-of-29 attempts from the charity stripe.
GW will host UMMC-Ekaterinburg in its final exhibition contest on Wednesday, Nov. 10 at 6:00 p.m. as the first half of a basketball doubleheader with the GW men's team.
