Colonials Tiptoe Past Tough Test in Towson
By Ryan Brumley
After falling to the Providence Friars in 110-97 shootout Wednesday night, the George Washington Colonials managed to squeak by the Towson Tigers 73-69. This win keeps the Colonials at a perfect 3-0 record on the road and keeps the team from losing back to back games, which it has not done all year.
The Colonials were led by senior Damian Hollis, who scored a team high 13 points and also pulled in 7 rebounds. Freshman Tim Johnson also chipped in 12 points off the bench and sophomore Aaron Ware pulled down 7 rebounds as well. David Pellom led the Colonials with 4 assists.
However, Tony Taylor was the hero for the Colonials this game as he managed to hit a pull-up jumper with 27 seconds left to break the tie at 69 apiece. This jumper sealed the game as Towson missed a 3 pointer on the following possession. Junior Guard Travis King gathered the rebound and passed ahead to Taylor who threw a long outlet pass to Ware who layed it in for the final basket.
The Towson Tigers were led by David Brewester, Josh Thorton, and RaShawn Polk who all managed to have double figures on the afternoon. The Tigers fell to 2-5 on the year.
The Colonials will break for exams, and then continue on a three game road stretch which next brings to Greenville, NC to face the East Carolina Pirates on Thursday December 22. As always you can listen live to the call live on your Colonials Radio Network on WRGW, gwradio.com.
