- Fordham (17-7, 7-2 A-10) scored the first six points of the game and never looked back, jumping out to a 37-9 lead after 13:40 of play before the Colonials scored nine in a row, sparked by a pair of jumpers and a three-pointer by senior Danni Jackson. Fordham led, 43-23, at halftime behind 54 percent shooting. GW (11-13, 5-5 A-10) opened the second half with back-to-back triples by graduate student Tara Booker and Jackson, igniting a 12-5 run that made it 48-35, but a three-pointer by Fordham guard Arielle Collins curbed the spurt and the Rams were able to go back up by 24 with a 15-4 surge of their own.
- La Salle's Shanel Harrison finished with a game-high 23 points, marking the seventh straight game the senior guard has hit double figures. She is now averaging 17.1 ppg in the current seven-game stretch. She added six rebounds, two steals and an assist. Ebonee Jones chipped in eight points, four rebounds, three assists and two steals, and Siobhan Beslow led the squad with seven rebounds along with two assists and a steal. Jacy Bradley, who tied the game with 4.8 seconds with her long three, led the Billikens (10-14, 4-5 Atlantic 10) with 17 points. Desirae Ball added 13 points, and Mallory Eggert led all players with nine rebounds while chipping in nine points.
Sally Kabengano scored 14 points to lead the Owls (12-12, 5-4), while Victoria Macaulay notched her 10th double-double of the season with 13 points and a game-high 10 boards. Macaulay added to her strong performance with six blocks, and has now recorded at least six of them in three of Temple's last four games. She is one block away from tying for fifth all-time in program history (currently with 187). Freshman Brianna Thomas was the lone Ram to score in double figures, finishing with 12 points. She added five rebounds and one steal. Junior Kerry Wallack scored all seven of her points in the first half. She also had four rebounds and two assists.
- Charlotte senior, Hailey, needing only one blocked shot to set the school's career record, got her rejection early to extend her consecutive games streak to 34. Hailey finished with her ninth-straight double-double with a team-high 16 points and 12 rebounds. It marks her 18th double-double of the campaign and 38th of her career. She surpassed 1,300 career points as well, raising her total to 1,313 with her effort.
- Saint Joseph's van Grinsven led all scorers with 19 points, shooting 6-of-15 from the floor and 7-of-10 from the line, and added 15 rebounds for her 11th double-double of the season. Cloud registered 16 points on 5-of-9 shooting from the floor and a near-perfect 6-of-7 from the free throw line to go with four rebounds and a game-leading five assists while Shields posted 12 points.
WEDNESDAY (2/13) RESULTS
Feb. 13, 2013
Fordham 66, George Washington 56 | FORDHAM POSTGAME/HIGHLIGHTS
BRONX, N.Y. - Over 1,500 local school children in attendance for Wednesday afternoon's game
witnessed a gem, as four Fordham players finished in double figures to help down George Washington,
66-56, in the Rose Hill Gym.
Fordham moved to 17-7 (7-2) with the victory, while GW dropped to 11-13 (5-5).
Samantha Clark started off the game with a put back on the Rams' first possession, grabbing her own
rebound and giving Fordham the first lead of the game at 2-0. Her layup kick-started an opening run
for the Rams, as they scored the game's first six points and forced GW to take a timeout just over two
minutes into the contest.
GW got on the board at the 17:16 mark of the first half, but the Rams went off again, scoring 11
unanswered points to take a 17-2 lead just under six minutes into the game.
La Salle 49, Saint Louis 46 | LA SALLE HIGHLIGHTS
PHILADELPHIA - With La Salle leading 46-43 with under five seconds to go, the onus was on Saint Louis to
deliver. The Billikens did, knotting the game at 46-46 with 4.8 seconds to go and overtime all but certain.
But Shanel Harrison was not having any of that, getting the ball on the inbounds and zipping the length of
the court around Billiken defenders to launch a desperation heave at the buzzer - and sinking that attempt
for three points and the 49-46 Atlantic 10 win at Tom Gola Arena on Wednesday afternoon.
The Explorers shot 35.8 percent for the game, thanks to a 48.3 percent second-half shooting clip. Saint
Louis shot 35.3 percent, including just 2-of-15 from long range.
La Salle won the turnover battle, forcing 16 Billiken miscues to 14 for the Explorers. Saint Louis, however,
edged the Explorers 37-32 on the glass.
Temple 56, Rhode Island 45 | TEMPLE HIGHLIGHTS
PHILADELPHIA – With a 12-1 run down the stretch of the second half, Temple women's basketball was able to put the game out of reach for Rhode Island and come away with a 56-45 win on Wednesday afternoon. Sally Kabengano scored 14 points to lead the Owls (12-12, 5-4), while Victoria Macaulay notched her 10th double-double of the season with 13 points and a game-high 10 boards.
Rhode Island used a 13-3 run to narrow the 13-point deficit all the way to three, 25-22 near the three-
minute mark. Temple scored six of the final eight points of the half to widen the margin back to five by
Temple's lead was as many as 14 in the remaining time, before the Rams cut the final margin to 11.
The game was the 11th annual School Day contest for Temple, and over 2,000 local youths came out to
watch the Owls play.
Charlotte 59, Butler 49 | CHARLOTTE HIGHLIGHTS | CHARLOTTE POSTGAME
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Charlotte overcame its worst shooting performance of the season, while senior Jennifer Hailey made history two times, as the 49ers came-from-behind for the second-straight game to pull out a 59-49 victory Wednesday night over Butler inside Halton Arena. The Niners, who trailed by four at the half, outscored the Bulldogs by 14 in the second half to win their eighth straight.
Hailey, needing only one blocked shot to set the school's career record, got her rejection early to extend her consecutive games streak to 34. She swatted a Hannah Douglas layup attempt out-of-bounds at 17:20 for the 208th in her career. The three-time reigning Atlantic 10 Player of the Week finished with five blocks, upping the standard to 212.
Taylor Schippers paced Butler (14-10, 5-4 A-10) with 17 points, connecting on 7-of-9 field goals and the only two free throws for the visitors. Daress McClung added a team-high 10 rebounds.
Saint Joseph's 69, Duquesne 68 | DUQUESNE POSTGAME

Duquesne (19-5, 8-2 A-10) responded with a layup with 34 seconds left, but van Grinsven was fouled in the paint and hit both of her free throws to put the Hawks back up, 69-68.
Chatilla van Grinsven's free throws with 17.1 seconds remaining were the decisive points in SJU's win at Duquesne.
