WASHINGTON (AP) - Troy Wiley scored 18 points and Brian Woodward produced 15 off the bench as Rhode Island won their first Atlantic 10 game, 75-62, over George Washington on Saturday.
The win breaks a six game losing streak for the Rams (5-12, 1-5), who had lost 11 of their last 12 entering the game. The Colonials (10-9, 3-5) dropped their fourth in a row.
Rhode Island chipped away at a seven point halftime deficit and exploded for an 18-1 run to take a 62-50 lead with just under six minutes remaining while its defense held George Washington scoreless for more than eight minutes.
The Colonials shot just 23 percent in the second half and could not get closer than 68-60 with two minutes remaining. The Rams hit nine of 10 free throws down the stretch to maintain a safe lead.
George Washington's 60 percent shooting created a 40-33 halftime lead. The 40 point output is the most the Colonials have scored all season in the first half.
However, Rhode Island ruled the boards with a huge 42-27 rebounding
