PITTSBURGH (AP) - Wayne Smith scored a season-high 26 points to lead Duquesne to a 79-69 victory over George Washington on Saturday.
Smith made only six of 15 shots but was perfect on 13 free throws and had 11 rebounds as the Dukes gave the Colonials (10-14, 3-10 Atlantic 10) their ninth consecutive loss.
Kevin Forney matched his season-high 19 points for Duquesne (9-15, 4-9), which has won four of five since losing eight in a row.
Tied at 46 with 14:07 remaining, the Colonials' Jaason Smith fouled out and Duquesne went on a 16-5 run to take the lead. Wayne Smith and Brad Midgley hit 3-point shots on consecutive possessions during the run to give the Dukes a 10-point lead.
The Dukes also limited Chris Monroe, who had 13 points in the first half, to two points, both on free throws, in the second half. Tamal Forchion led George Washington with 19 points, while Smith added 13.
Greg Collucci, who scored 21 points in George Washington's 74-50 victory over Duquesne on Jan. 6, was held to three points.
Duquesne's leading rebounder, Aaron Lovelace, dislocated a toe on his right foot in the first half and did not return.
The Colonials are on their longest losing streak since the 1988-89 season
when they finished with 13 consecutive losses en route to a 1-27 record. George
Washington hasn't won since beating La Salle 75-72 on Jan. 13.
