Bona women lose fourth in row

For the second game in a row, 16 wasn't a sweet number for the St. Bonaventure women's basketball team.

The Bonnies made a mere 16 of 58 shots in dropping a 62-41 decision Sunday to George Washington in an Atlantic 10 Conference game played before 523 in the Reilly Center.

Bona shot 16 of 54 in Friday's 73-39 loss at Charlotte.

With Bona trailing, 24-22, late in the first half, the Colonials (17-6, 10-2) used a 7-0 burst to close the frame and then scored 24 of the first 35 points in the second to eliminate the suspense and send the Bonnies (8-15, 2-10) to their fourth straight defeat.

Bona made just six field goals in the second half and shot 20 percent from behind the arc for the game.

Stefanie Collins led Bona with 11 points, draining three three-pointers to boost her career total to 272. The school record for career treys is 291 (Suzie Dailer). Freshman Ashley Edwards recorded her second double-double with 10 points and a game-high 13 rebounds.

Niagara's game against Iona in New Rochelle was rescheduled for 2 p.m. today because of heavy snow in the New York City area.

D'Youville held Polytechnic to four first-half points en route to a 44-29 win. Heather Russell scored eight points for the Spartans (12-9, 11-2 North East Athletic Conference).
