Spiders lay an egg vs. GW

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The Spiders won one of the biggest games of their season on Saturday.  But there would be no lasting momentum from their victory over Temple.

Tony Taylor scored 23 points Lasan Kromah scored 21 points.

The Colonials (7-11, 2-2 Atlantic 10 Conference) shot 69.2 percent from the field in the second half, 58.2 percent overall (32 of 55) and took control with an 18-3 run midway through the game.

Taylor scored 15 points after halftime while Kromah, who was perfect on all five of his second half shots, added 12

After letting a 10-point lead in the first half disappear, the Colonials entered halftime on a 9-2 run for a 33-27 advantage, the final six points coming from Taylor. They opened the second half with a 9-1 push, extending the lead to 42-28 on a Taylor 3-pointer.

The Colonials led by 23 points in the closing minutes. Darien Brothers scored 17 points to lead the Spiders (11-8, 2-2).

The Spiders next host UMass Saturday at 5pm.
