Dec. 27, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - George Washington started its post-Christmas schedule with a 76-54 victory over Quinnipiac on Saturday, December 27 at Smith Center. Senior Cathy Joens (Irvine, CA/Calvary Chapel) established a season high with 28 points, which included six three-pointers. Senior Sara Esidore led the Bobcats with 12 points, while the Colonials did a solid job holding Quinnipiac's leading scorer, Ashlee Kelly, to seven points below her average with 11.
The Colonials shot 47.5% (29-61), while holding Quinnipiac to 35.1% (20-57). GW also outbattled the Bobcats on the boards with a 40-34 edge. But, the story of the game was GW's ability to create turnovers and then capitalize off of them. The Colonials forced 26 Quinnipiac turnovers and scored 32 points as a result.
GW used a 16-5 run midway through the second half to break the game open. The Bobcats would get no closer than 19 the rest of the game as GW cruised to the twenty-two point victory. The Colonials received solid inside-outside play from senior Valerie Williams (Ft. Lauderdale, FL/Ft. Lauderdale), who finished with 12 points, and junior Anna Monta?ana (Valencia, Spain/St. Maria El Pilar), who scored 11 points to go along with a team-high seven rebounds.
Quinnipiac started the game tough and held a three-point lead four minutes in, but GW would soon take control and the Colonials would work for the rest of the half to take a 40-29 lead into the locker room.
GW will try and make it two in row when they battle the No. 2 Tennessee Lady Volunteers at Smith Center on Tuesday, December 30 at 7:00 p.m.
