Armwood totaled 12 points, four rebounds and four blocks while limiting Creighton All-American forward Doug McDermott to seven points, nearly 21 below his average, to help GW score its first win over a ranked opponent since 2005. Armwood opened the event with his first double-double of the season with 12 points and 11 rebounds in a 71-63 overtime win against Miami (Fla.).

Through seven games, Armwood leads the 6-1 Colonials with 7.7 rebounds and 2.9 blocks per game and is second on the team with 13.6 points per outing.
