Women win, finish with undefeated A-10 record

It was a good weekend for the GW women, who beat Temple at home to end the year with an undefeated A-10 record. Temple came in undefeated as well, but didn't leave that way.

The game had a nice crowd, especially considering the snowy weather, and it was tight. GW was shooting well but couldn't rebound whatsoever, as Temple had nearly as many offensive rebounds (22) as GW had total rebounds (27). Temple had 48 rebounds total. Erica Jo Lawrence was GW's main weapon, knocking down open jumpers for 19 points while five other GW players added between 5 and 8 points. The officiating was a little questionable, especially the female ref, who frequently made calls from the other side of the court. But after trading baskets for most of the game, GW locked down and went up 6, holding on to win by 3.

GW has a bye in the A-10 tourney and will face the winner of the La Salle-Dayton game on Saturday.
