WASHINGTON (AP)- J.R. Pinnock scored a career-high 21 points and made three 3-pointers as George Washington beat La Salle 74-57 Saturday afternoon.
The Colonials (9-6, 3-1 Atlantic 10) shot 60 percent from the floor and made 10 3-pointers to win their sixth straight at home.
Steven Smith scored 24 to lead La Salle (7-9, 2-1), which was never closer than eight in the second half.
Pinnock helped the Colonials, who made nine of their first 11 shots, start quickly by capping scoring runs of 12-4 and 15-2 that allowed George Washington to take a 41-28 halftime lead.
Mike Hall scored 17 points for the Colonials, inlcuding six during the 15-2 run.
Gary Neal, who finished with 14 points, and Smith tried to keep the game close by combining for 14 of La Salle's 16 points during one nine-minute stretch of the second half.
Before the game there was a moment of silence for former George Washington standout Yinka Dare, who died because of heart attack on Jan. 9.
The 31-year-old Dare was the No. 14 pick overall of the New Jersey Nets
after he led the Colonials to the round of 16 in the 1993 NCAA tournament.
