(25) GEO WASHINGTON 82, TCU 77

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.
