    Adair's 23 points help George Washington past W. Kentucky

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Jessica Adair had 23 points and eight rebounds to lead George Washington (No. 15 ESPN/USA Today, No. 17 AP) to an 80-63 victory over Western Kentucky in the finale of the GW Thanksgiving Classic on Saturday.

    Tournament MVP Kimberly Beck had 18 points and 12 assists for the Colonials (5-1), who have won two straight since losing 67-42 to No. 7 Rutgers. Sarah-Jo Lawrence added 16 points, six rebounds and five assists.

    Crystal Kelly led Western Kentucky (4-2) with 30 points on 9-of-15 shooting and added five rebounds.

    The Colonials, who played without two starters, took control with a 14-2 run early in the second half. Antelia Parrish, George Washington's leading rebounder and second-leading scorer, missed the game with a sprained left ankle sustained in Friday's game. Whitney Allen missed her second straight game with a broken left ring finger.

    Lawrence, a senior, became the 24th member of George Washington's 1,000-point club with a jumper that gave the Colonials a 22-21 lead with 8:39 remaining in the first half.
