Three Colonials finished in double-figures Thursday night as GW rolled against DePaul 81-68 at the Smith Center. Patricio Garino led the team in scoring with 19 points and five steals while Kevin Larsen was named player of the game with 18 points and eight rebounds in 28 minutes. Joe McDonald added a season-high 18 points in the win.

DePaul came into the game as one of the best shooting teams in the country with a 49.5 percent clip from the field. However, it was the Colonials who showed their shooting prowess on this night, shooting 60 percent as a team from the field while holding the Blue Demons to 34.6 percent shooting in the first half to jump out to a 20-point lead at halftime. DePaul did improve mightily in the second half, hitting 63 percent of their shots, but they could not dig themselves out their massive halftime hole as the Colonials got enough timely buckets to seal the win.

Myke Henry was a bright spot for DePaul, continuing his impressive play with 22 points on 8-12 from the field in 29 minutes. Jamie Crockett added 16 points in the loss for the Blue Demons, who drop to 6-2 on the season.

Meanwhile, the Colonials improve to 6-2 on the season and will now prepare for a visit to Penn State in a matinee on Sunday in State College. WRGW’s coverage begins at 11:50 am, with tip off scheduled for noon on gwradio.com.
