Men's Hoops Falls To American, 81-75
T.J. Thompson tallies 26 points for the Colonials.

WASHINGTON (AP)- Steven Miles hit four straight free throws in the final 11 seconds to seal American's 81-75 win over George Washington and help the Eagles' snap their nine-game losing streak against the Colonials.
Miles and Glenn Stokes each scored 24 points for American (5-6), which had not beaten the Colonials since 1989. However, this was the first meeting between the crosstown schools since the 2000 season.
George Washington (6-5) was able to build a seven-point lead in the second half thanks to the shooting of TJ Thompson, who scored a career-high 26 for the Colonials. Chris Monroe also scored 26, including a driving lay-up that gave the Colonials their final lead of the game with 1:20 to play.
But down the stretch American, which trailed 40-35 at halftime, got production from up and down its roster to take the lead for good.
Matej Cresnik answered Monroe's drive with a 3-pointer to give the Eagles a 75-73 lead, and Andres Rodriguez made two-of-four free throws to increase the lead to four.
