GW wins!!

The 11-game losing streak is over, as GW played a good game against a bad team, scoring 57 in the first half to take it 87-62. In the first half especially, GW had good ball movement, rebounding and defense, got to the line inside, and some nice transition play.

Damian Hollis scored 19 to lead GW, Rob Diggs had 17, Wynton Witherspoon had 13 and Tony Taylor added 10. Joseph Katuka had a nice game against a Rams team that was weak in the post, scoring 8 and collecting 9 rebounds.

For the game, GW shot 57.4% from the field (and 64% in the first half), 53.8% from 3, and where 18/24 from the foul line. The team slackened a bit in the second, letting the Rams get open more and hit 8/13 threes, but managed to keep them far enough away to take the win comfortably.

Hopefully GW can keep this up on Wednesday against La Salle at the Smith Center.
