Men's Hoops Falls To American, 81-75
T.J. Thompson tallies 26 points for the Colonials.
Jan 2, 2003
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.
The Colonials, who committed 18 turnovers, pulled within two with 14 seconds
to play on two free throws by Thompson. But Miles put the game away with his
four free throws.
