DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Brooks Hall scored a career-high 26 points and Dayton held Chris Monroe to 1-for-12 shooting Wednesday night as it pulled away to an 83-59 victory over George Washington.
Dayton (9-4, 1-1 Atlantic 10) seldom missed and seldom gave up open shots in a dominating first half. The Flyers made 16-of-26 from the field and held George Washington (9-5, 2-1) to 26.7 percent shooting.
Monroe came into the game averaging 22.8 points - 11th-best in Division I - but managed only one 3-pointer and three free throws, all in the first half. Monroe, the Colonials' only returning starter from last season, had scored in double digits in his last 21 games.
Ramod Marshall added 20 points for Dayton and Keith Waleskowski made every shot as he scored 18. Waleskowski made all six of his field-goal attempts, including a 3-pointer, and all five free throws.
Greg Collucci led George Washington with 11 points on 4-of-14 shooting. The Colonials shot 29.5 percent overall.
Marshall hit three consecutive 3-pointers and had a fastbreak layup as Dayton took control with a 15-3 spurt in the first half. Monroe hit his 3-pointer and a pair of free throws as the Colonials trimmed the lead from 13 points to 23-19, but Hall made a pair of 3s as Dayton pulled away again.
The lead fluctuated between 12 and 26 points in the second half.
