PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Pat Calathes scored 17 points and Darrin Govens added 16 in leading Saint Joseph's to a 62-56 victory over George Washington on Wednesday.
Calathes also set a school free-throw record at Saint Joseph's (15-10, 7-4 Atlantic 10) by making 38 straight before finally missing Wednesday. Delonte West held the previous mark by getting 37 in a row in 2003-04.
After a 3-point play by Rob Diggs gave George Washington a 52-49 lead with 6:03 to play, Calathes made one foul shot, but missed the second to end his streak. However, Ahmad Nivins rebounded the ball and converted a 3-point play. Govens then hit a 3-pointer and four straight points by Nivins completed the 10-0 run.
The Colonials closed to within 59-56 at the 2:05 mark, but two free throws by Govens with 57 seconds remaining sealed the victory.
