GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Omar Williams had 14 points for the eighth-seeded Colonials, and Mike Hall added 13 but No. 1 seed Duke ousted 8th-seeded GW from the NCAA Tournament, 74-61, Saturday afternoon at Greensboro, NC.
Duke led from Redick's 3-pointer less than a minute in, but the margin was only one when GW suddenly had trouble scoring. A 17-4 run capped with free throws from McRoberts pushed the lead to 36-20, with each starter for the Colonials getting at least two fouls.
They rallied to get within 11 at the break and eventually cut it to nine on a steal and a dunk by Danilo Pinnock. But the Blue Devils scored 11 of the next 14 points to resume command, and again the damage was done at the line. DeMarcus Nelson swished two for his first points of the tournament, McRoberts had one and Williams made all four of his to make it 62-45.
Duke finished 26-of-37 on free throws, which included Redick's uncharacteristically poor 2-for-7. It's the first time in his career he's missed more than four free throws in a single game.
Regis Koundjia fouled out and four other players finished with four apiece for GW, which finished with 29 fouls.
Pops Mensah-Bonsu, who sat out four games down the stretch for the Colonials following knee surgery, never was a factor and had four points and two rebounds in 13 minutes.
