WASHINGTON - Even though he didn't play because of a broken arm, John Bryant was credited for leading Saint Joseph's to its latest victory.
On the bench in a blue long-sleeved shirt instead of a uniform, Bryant supplied the inspiration as the Hawks beat George Washington 71-56 Tuesday night to win Atlantic 10 title outright.
J.R. Pinnock scored 16 points for George Washington (18-7, 10-5), which suffered a setback in its bid for the school's first NCAA tournament berth since 1999. The Smith Center was stuffed to capacity on Senior Night as the Colonials tried to match the emotion of a visiting team playing for its injured leader.
The Hawks played an inspired opening 10 minutes, taking a 25-11 lead on the strength of 3-point shooting by Carroll and Dwayne Lee. The Hawks led 33-26 at halftime, and held off the Colonials every time George Washington threatened to make a charge in fast-paced second half.
George Washington got within 39-36 with 15 minutes remaining, but layups by Dwayne Jones and Rob Ferguson stopped the Colonials' momentum.
