Colonials Squeeze Orangewomen, 65-43
Joens Scores Game-High 24 Points in Victory
Dec. 4, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - George Washington cruised to a 65-43 victory over the Syracuse Orangewomen winning their second game of the season.
GW (2-2) was led by senior guard Cathy Joens (Irvine, CA/Calvary Chapel) who scored a game-high 24 points, adding seven rebounds in 28 minutes of play. The Colonials balanced Joens' scoring with a stifling defense that limited SU (3-3) to just 14 first half points and a frigid 24% shooting (6-25).
With her 24 points, Joens single-handedly outscored the entire Orangewomen team until SU's Lauren Kohn scored the team's 25th point with 9:10 remaining in the game. GW held a 47-25 lead at that point, and Joens was subbed out, and did play for the remainder of the game.
Anna Monta?ana (Valencia, Spain/St. Maria el Pilar) also had a solid game and added 13 points, 14 rebounds, five assists and three steals for the Colonials. Monta?ana's 14 boards matched a career high for the junior forward as she recorded her first double-double of the season.
GW substituted liberally after building a lead of 25 with less than ten minutes remaining in the game. The Colonials maintained the lead with solid play from the newcomers. GW fielded all four active freshmen for the balance of the game, as they gained valuable experience.
SU was led by Marchele Campbell who came off the bench to scored 12 points as the only player in double-figures for the Orangewomen.
The Colonials head to Howard University for a cross-town showdown between local rival on Saturday, Dec. 5, in a 2:00 p.m. game.
