Men’s tennis senior Ugur Atalay and women’s lacrosse senior Sarah Phillips are the Outstanding Senior Student-Athletes of the year, nabbing the top prizes at today’s Senior Honors Luncheon.
After failing to score on their final two offensive possessions, it became clear that the Colonials’ comeback against conference foe Saint Joseph’s would fall short.
Though a victory against the Explorers would have given GW a sure berth in the A-10 tournament, the Colonials failed to capitalize on the opportunity, ultimately losing the match 69-47.
Four members of the roster are technically seniors, but senior forward/guard Tara Booker and senior center Sara Mostafa won’t be honored in tonight’s festivities due to their remaining year of eligibility.
The Colonials (11-15) ultimately fell to the Minutemen 59-53 Sunday, extending GW’s losing streak to three, while snapping Massachusetts’ nine-game losing streak.
The Colonials faltered, allowing Temple’s heavy pressure to disrupt their play. Turnovers, missed shots and shaky rhythm plagued GW’s game, and the Owls ultimately handed the Colonials a 75-54 defeat.
For the Colonials (10-12) Saturday afternoon, a 80-69 loss to undefeated conference rival St. Bonaventure wasn’t a completely negative situation.
GW fell behind early in the game, trailing 16-4 just over six minutes into the contest, and the team couldn’t recover from the early hole, working all game to overcome its slow start.
The Colonials (9-9) used speed and quickness to their advantage Wednesday en route to a 63-42 victory, snapping a two-game losing streak.
The Spiders’ guard torched the Colonials defense from behind the arc, draining eight of nine shots from the three-point range, breaking a Richmond record for three-pointers that had not been touched in more than 21 years.
