The Colonials got within 20-16 with 6:35 to play in the half, but Dayton scored the next 11 points - seven of them from Green.
In the second half, George Washington, losers of four straight, closed to 66-59 on a 3-pointer by T.J. Thompson with 2:49 remaining, but went cold until Chris Monroe hit two free throws with 23.8 seconds remaining. By then, Dayton led 70-61.
