Manhattan vs George Washington

George Washington 67, Manhattan 55

  •  

WASHINGTON (AP) - Isaiah Armwood scored a career-high 23 points and grabbed nine rebounds, and George Washington overcame 23 turnovers to beat Manhattan 67-55 Sunday in the opening game of the BB&T Classic.

Armwood, a senior forward, went 8 for 12 from the field and made all seven of his free throws for the Colonials (4-3), who have won back-to-back games for the first time this season.

RaShawn Stores had 11 points and six rebounds for the Jaspers (2-4). The Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference school went 1-2 in a three-game stretch against Atlantic 10 opponents.

Manhattan's George Beamon, averaging 19.3 points entering the game, shot 3 for 13 from the field and finished with nine points. He missed a breakaway dunk with 2:06 to play that would have cut the deficit to four after a GW turnover.

The game was tied at 32 at halftime, and neither team led by double digits until GW closed the game with a 15-6 run. The Colonials went 10 for 11 from the free-throw line over the final four minutes of a foul-heavy game.

Manhattan committed 24 fouls and had three players foul out. GW was whistled for 19 and had one player disqualified.

Lasan Kromah added 18 points for the Colonials. Patricio Garino had 10.

For the second straight season, George Washington's coaches and players took the subway to the Verizon Center for the BB&T Classic, located four stops away from the Colonials' Foggy Bottom campus.
