Washington, D.C. - For the second straight game, every Hoya player that checked into the game scored and the Georgetown University women's basketball team won its seventh straight game over visiting American University, 67-52 on Friday night. The Hoyas, who also won their eighth straight home game over the Eagles, improve to 2-1 overall.
Senior Kieraah Marlow (Coatesville, Pa./Coatesville) netted a game-high 17 points while junior guard Brina Pollack (Marlboro, N.J./Marlboro) tallied 12 points. It was the third consecutive game that Marlow and Pollack scored 17 and 12 points, respectively. It also marked the 25th career double-double for Marlow who hauled in 11 boards.
Hoya junior transfer Krystle Hatton (St. Louis, Mo./Hazelwood East) grabbed a career-high nine rebounds to go along with five points in just 11 minutes off the bench.
Georgetown outrebounded the Eagles, 42-30 for the game and GU recorded 21 second chance points. The Hoya bench outscored the visitor's bench, 25-13.
Georgetown led 39-36 with 14:27 to go in regulation, before the Hoyas went on an 18-5 run over the next six minutes to pull away. The Hoyas forced AU into 1-7 shooting from the floor during the stretch while the Eagles committed five turnovers.
Georgetown made a season-best 46 percent of its field goals.
American's (1-2) Stephanie N'Garsanet finished with 15 points while senior Liz Hayes chipped in with 13 points.
N'Garsanet gave the Eagles an early 7-2 edge with a bank shot from the elbow at 16:50 but Georgetown stormed back with a 7-0 of their own for a 9-7 lead. The Hoyas would take the lead for good moments later when Marlow scored six of Georgetown's next eight points.
Georgetown returns to the floor on Tuesday, November 20 when the Blue and Gray hosts Navy at 7:30 p.m.
