The Spiders scored 15 unanswered points midway through the second half to take a 59-67 lead, holding George Washington scoreless for five minutes. Dunks by Gaston Moliva and Reggie Brown and three jumpers by Skrocki paced Richmond during the stretch.

Moliva came off the bench to add 13 points and eight rebounds for Richmond, while Tony Dobbins scored 11 points and pulled down 6 rebounds.
