George Washington (4-1) relied on Oha to establish an inside presence, and the Colonials shot 53 percent. When the Cougars (5-2) began to focus their defense on Oha it left Lawrence and others open around the basket.
Erin Thorn led BYU with 22 points, and was a consistent threat from the outside, making five of 11 3-point attempts.
The Colonials, who led 41-35 at halftime, were able to get the Cougars into foul trouble early. Four BYU starters were whistled for two fouls in the first half.
Lisa Hansen, who began the night with the responsibility of trying to stop Oha, picked up her fourth foul less than two minutes into the second half.
BYU cut the Colonials' lead to 60-54 with eight minutes to play on a layup by Kestlee Nelson, but Anna Montanana made a 3-pointer with 6:50 to play to started a decisive 13-0 run over the next three minutes. Cathy Joens also scored 17 points for the Colonials.
Oha scored 16 of her points in the first half to help the Colonials open an
11-point lead, but BYU got within two on a 3-pointer by Thorn despite George
Washington shooting 60 percent in the first half.
