GW vs. Texas A&M: A long time coming

By Lara Boyko - March 19, 2007

It's been 10 years and too many games, but by George, George Washington has made the Atlantic 10 conference proud tonight after knocking off Texas A&M and advancing to the Sweet 16.

"I thought we played with a tremendous amount of heart and it feels good to have a team that wants to keep winning and not care about who gets the credit," GW coach Joe McKeown said.

Let credit go where deserved, the Colonials are riding high into next weekend thanks to a hard fought team effort and from stellar scoring from Kimberly Beck's 18 points, Sarah-Jo Lawrence's 12 points (my fellow blogger from John Walters wonders if the 'Jo' is in there so she is not mistaken for a small liberal arts college) and Jessica Adair's 10 points. The Colonials were out-boarded as expected, but only by a seven-board margin of 39-32.

Texas A&M was never really out of it until the last six minutes of the game. It was at 6:39 where the Aggies were still in reaching distance by only being down by three.

Leading the Aggie effort tonight was Takia Starks with 16 points followed by Danielle Gant with nine.

The GW team is currently enjoying a cushy seat in the stands watching the ASU vs. Louisville game happy to know they are heading to Dallas next weekend.

Stay tuned, more on ASU vs. Louisville to come.
