WASHINGTON (AP) - Cathy Joens had 19 points and eight rebounds and George Washington beat its second straight ranked opponent, routing No. 21 Oregon 72-52 on Thursday night.
Joens, who scored 18 points Dec. 10 in George Washington's 76-75 overtime victory over then-No. 23 Boston College, opened the second half with a layup to start a 12-0 run for the Colonials (5-2).
