PITTSBURGH (AP) — Khwan Fore made a game-saving steal and continued down court for an exclamation layup at the buzzer and third-seeded Richmond escaped with a 70-67 win over George Washington in the Atlantic 10 Tournament quarterfinals on Friday night.

Down one with 5.8 seconds left and the ball under its own basket, the Colonials went up top to Yuta Watanabe but as he tried to dribble left around his defender at the top of the key, Fore slashed in and took the ball away.

The Spiders (20-11) were up six before Jordan Roland hit a 3-pointer from the right corner and then Jair Bolden drained a 15-foot jumper from the left baseline — his only points of the game — as the shot clocked expired with 43.6 seconds to go. Richmond missed again, its fifth straight, with 14.4 to play.

ShawnDre' Jones had 19 points for Richmond, which meets second-seeded VCU in a semifinal on Saturday. Fore had 14 points and seven rebounds and Nich Sherod 13 points.

Tyler Cavanaugh had 23 points and 12 rebounds for the sixth-seeded Colonials (19-14) and Patrick Steeves chipped in 16.
