WASHINGTON (AP) - Rob Diggs came off the bench to score a career-high 24 points, including six straight in a key second half stretch, and George Washington beat Richmond 68-49 on Wednesday.
Maureece Rice added 16 points and Carl Elliott had 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Colonials (17-8, 8-5 Atlantic 10), who moved within a half game of Saint Joseph's in the race for the fourth and final first-round bye in next month's conference tournament. Saint Joseph's plays Temple on Thursday.
Last-place Richmond (6-20, 2-11), which received 14 points from Dan Geriot, has lost 10 of its last 11 games. The Spiders have lost 20 games in a season for the first time since 1995-96.
The Colonials took the lead for good at 34-33 on a basket by Damian Hollis with 16:49 left. Diggs then scored six straight points, the last basket on a thunderous dunk, to key an 11-0 run that put George Washington in firm control.
George Washington had just nine turnovers and outrebounded the Spiders 39-21.
