George Washington Vs. Cal Final Score: Golden Bears Run Away With Game 81-54, Tony Taylor Scores 20 For GW

Despite playing California closer in the second half than in the first, the George Washington Colonials will fall to 1-1 on the season with an 81-54 loss to the No. 24 Golden Bears, who ran away with the game at home. Despite staying close early on, the Colonials dug too deep of a hole to climb out of in the first half, trailing by 20 at the buzzer.

The incredible shooting of the Golden Bears was the difference in this one, as they shot 56 percent from the field, 67 percent from 3-point range and 74 percent from the free throw line. By comparison, the Colonials shot just 38 percent from both the field and the foul line, though a more than respectable 43 percent from 3-point range.

It was that reliance from 3-point range that cost the Colonials the most, as they only made 15 field goals from elsewhere. Although that was one of the main issues, the Colonials were beaten soundly in every aspect of the game, though they did commit two fewer turnovers than Cal. With the win the Golden Bears move to 2-0.
