PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Charlie Brown and Lamarr Kimble each made late 3-pointers to help Saint Joseph's pull away from George Washington for a 68-63 victory in an Atlantic 10 opener on Friday night.

George Washington led 63-61 when Brown hit a 3 with 2:25 to play. Tyler Cavanaugh had his layup attempt blocked, then missed a jumper on the Colonials' next possession.
