George Washington vs. Boise State: George Washington is upset!

By Lara Boyko - March 17, 2007

Just kidding.

George Washington just finished taking care of Boise State, 76-67.

Give the Broncos credit for only losing by nine considering at one point they were flirting with being down by 30, but a George Washington 19-0 run at the beginning of the game followed by a late game surge by Boise State that was just little bit too much, too late sealed the fate of the Broncos.

"We were like deer in the headlights at the beginning, but I am proud of how we battled back," Bosie State coach Gordy Presnell said.

Leading the way for George Washington was Kenan Cole with 16 points. Yet it was Jessica Adair with 15 points and 21, yes 21 rebounds, that was too much for the Broncos. Other notible performances for the Colonials were from Kimberly Beck and Sara-Jo Lawrence with 14 points a piece.

"We came out and wanted to show people what we were about," said Adair.

George Washington controlled the boards 57-32, thanks in large part to Adair's career-high night.

The big performances for the night from Boise State came from Nadia Begay with 26 points (which was two points short of her career-high of 28 points) and Tasha Harris with 11 points and a team-leading nine rebounds.

The Colonials will face off against the Aggies on Monday.

Stay tuned, the second half of the day begins at 5:15 pm with a BYU-Louisville match-up.
