Feb 22, 2003
WASHINGTON (AP) - Tamal Forchion scored a season-high 18 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lead George Washington to a 76-67 win over La Salle on Saturday.
George Washington (10-14, 4-10 Atlantic 10) shot 44 percent from the floor, remarkably better than the 23 percent the Colonials shot in a 67-49 road loss to the Explorers (10-13, 4-8) back in January.
Gary Neal scored 31 points and made five 3-pointers, the last one pulling La Salle to within 50-44 with 12:56 to play. However, Forchion and Greg Collucci combined to score all 11 George Washington points during an 11-3 run over the next four minutes. Collucci hit consecutive 3-pointers during the run that helped the Colonials take a 15-point lead. Collucci finished with 11 points.
Chris Monroe scored 12 points for George Washington, which had lost two straight to La Salle.
A second-chance layup by Neal with 2:09 remaining got the Explorers within
eight, but a late dunk by Forchion, who had not scored more than five points in
a game this season, put the game out of reach.
