WASHINGTON (AP) - Mike Hall notched his fourth double-double on the season as George Washington defeated Duquesne 83-63 Saturday.
The Colonials (10-7, 4-2) were buoyed by a 16-2 run in the second half. After Duquesne cut the lead to four, G.W. held the Dukes scoreless for two minutes midway through the half, forcing three turnovers and scoring after each.
Hall finished with 19 points and 12 rebounds, one of four Colonials in double figures. T.J. Thompson led the Colonials with 20 points, 5 steals, and 3 assists.
Duquesne (8-9, 3-3) kept the contest close in the first half, as the game saw 10 lead changes and nine ties. But shooting failed the Dukes in the second half, and Duquesne ended the game shooting only 38 percent after several games at 50 percent.
Elijah Palmer led Duquesne with 13 points and 9 rebounds.
GW took good care of the basketball only committing a season-low nine turnovers.
