The Colonials (11-16, 5-11) end the regular season as the fifth seed in the Atlantic 10 West Division. Fordham (2-25, 3-13), fifth seed in the East, lost its last 14 games.
The Rams hung around until late in the second half, trailing 56-53 with less than seven minutes remaining. Mensah-Bonsu, Monroe, and Mike Hall keyed a 21-8 run in the waning minutes. Hall scored 16 points and made five steals.
Monroe, playing in his final home game, moved within 23 points of becoming George Washington's all-time leading scorer. He scored in double digits in all 27 games this season.
Michael Haynes and Glenn Batemon each had 14 points for Fordham. Mushon Ya'akosi scored a career-high 13 points in 14 minutes for the Rams but played just two minutes in the second half because of foul trouble. He scored all of his points in the first half.
Fordham committed three technical fouls, which proved costly, as the
Colonials shot 67 percent from the free throw line.
