WASHINGTON (AP) -George Washington, which trailed by 21 points in the first half, stormed back to beat Marshall 74-65 on Saturday for its 21st straight win at home.
Marshall (5-9), which led 42-25 at halftime, made just eight of 33 (24.2 percent) field goal attempts in the second half. The Herd, which had won two straight going into Saturday's game, has not won three straight games since January 2003.
Markel Humphrey had 20 points for Marshall and Travis Aikens added 12.
Elliott reached the 1,000-point mark for his career with a free throw with 4:45 remaining, and his second free throw gave GW a 61-54 lead.
GW, which made 59 percent of its shots in the second half, had tied the game at 48-48 on a basket by Rob Diggs (15 points) with 12:07 left in the game to cap an 8-0 run by the Colonials.
Marshall took the lead at 50-48 on a dunk by Jean Francois Bro Grebe with 10:14 to go, but a dunk by GW's Dokun Akingbade with 9:09 left gave GW a 51-50 lead.
Rice's three-pointer with 8:05 left gave GW a 54-52 lead, and the Colonials never trailed after that. A layup by Elliott put the Colonials up 56-52 with 7:36 remaining, and Marshall missed several shots in the lane in the closing minutes.
