Women's Basketball Ambushed by Florida, 80-63
Joens Leads GW with 22 points and seven rebounds
Dec. 22, 2003
GAINESVILLE, FL - George Washington got 22 points from Cathy Joens (Irvine, CA/Calvary Chapel) and 18 from Ugo Oha (Houston, TX/Hastings), but it wasn't enough as the Colonials (5-3) fell to the Florida Gators (9-2), 80-63, at the O'Connell Center on Monday, December 22. The victory increased Florida's winning streak to four while halting GW's win streak at five.
The Gators were led by Bernice Mosby who had 31 points and 11 rebounds and was one of four Gators to score in double figures. GW had only two players in double figures and shot just 35.7% (25-70), while Florida shot 46.3% (31-67).
Florida used an 11-2 run starting with 13:05 left in the second half to break open what had been a fiercely contested game to that point. GW was unable to make a run of its own, allowing the Gators to notch their 15th consecutive non-conference home victory.
The game was a see-saw battle in the first half, which included five ties and nine lead changes. GW held its largest lead at 22-18 with 6:43 left in the first half, but Florida rallied to take a six-point lead, 35-29, going in to the break.
The Colonials will look to bounce back on Saturday, December 27, at 7:00 p.m. when they welcome Quinnipiac (5-2) to Smith Center.
