By: Harry Falber
The GW Women’s Colonials dominated this game from start to finish and it wasn’t even close. GW beat the Illinois Fighting Ilini 72-56 from the Smith Center Sunday afternoon.
Three different Colonials (Washington, Schaible, Cummings) scored in double figures. The Colonials were also a perfect 16-16 from the free throw line.
MVP of the Game:
While there are so many people this can go to, we’re going to give this one to Hannah Schaible. Schaible was all over the court for the Colonials finishing with a team high 14 points, 2 assists, 3 rebounds, and 2 steals. When Caira Washington wasn’t playing that well in the first half, it was Schaible picking up the slack.
Difference of the Game
