George Washington edges TCU, gears up for No. 1 Maryland

Nov 18, 2006 - 11:30 PM COLLEGE PARK, Maryland (Ticker) -- Sarah-Jo Lawrence and George Washington may have been looking ahead to Sunday, but still had enough to win on Saturday.

Lawrence scored 20 points and Kimberly Beck added 18 as the 25th-ranked Colonials posted an 82-77 victory over TCU in their second game of the BTI Classic.

Jessica Adair, the team's leading scorer entering the game, had 10 points and seven rebounds for George Washington (4-0), which next will face No. 1 Maryland on Sunday.

Lawrence was 7-of-10 from the field and Beck made 4-of-9 3-pointers in the first meeting against the Lady Frogs (0-2).

Adrianne Ross had 24 points and Lorie Butler-Rayford added 11 and 13 rebounds for TCU, which shot 42 percent (27-of-64) from the field.

The Colonials now play the top-ranked Terrapins for the fourth time, with GW trailing in the series 2-1, but winning the most recent matchup between the two programs, 77-67, at the Smith Center in January 1994.
