WASHINGTON (AP) — George Washington defeated Saint Joseph's 76-71 Wednesday night, snapping a stretch of four straight home losses to the Hawks.
The senior day win keeps the Colonials' (22-7, 10-5 Atlantic 10) hopes for a top-four seed and bye to the A-10 quarterfinals alive. The victory over the Hawks (21-8, 11-4) pulled the Colonials into a fourth-place tie in the A-10 and makes it likely George Washington is headed to the NCAA tournament.
