PHILADELPHA (AP) - Carl Elliott had 16 points, 11 rebounds and six assists to lead George Washington to an 86-74 victory over La Salle on Saturday.
Ruben Guillandeaux scored 15 points and Darnell Harris contributed 13 for the Explorers (10-18, 3-11), who have lost eight of ten and seven straight to the Colonials dating back to January 11, 2003.
The Explorers struggled shooting the entire game, going just 6-for-24 (25 percent) in the first half and 22-for-62 (35.5 percent) overall.
George Washington used a 20-6 run on the way to a 42-27 halftime lead, outscoring the Explorers 22-2 in the paint and holding a 27-12 edge in rebounding. La Salle did not make a field goal during the final 10:35 of the half.
The Explorers opened up the second half with a 14-6 run to cut the lead to 48-41 with 15:58 remaining, but would come no closer. The teams traded baskets for most of the second half before George Washington pulled away in the final minutes.
