The Colonials (1-0) trailed by 18 at halftime but surged into the lead as the Thundering Herd (0-1) made only two second-half field goals.
Jaason Smith added 12 points and 14 rebounds as George Washington advanced to take on either No. 4 Kentucky or Western Kentucky in Friday night's championship game.
Tamar Slay scored 22 points, J.R. VanHoose had 14, Ronny Dawn 11 and Latece Williams 10 points and 11 rebounds for Marshall, which shot 7 percent in the second half and 33 percent for the game.
Slay was 3-of-6 from 3-point range as Marshall took a 38-32 lead with 5:17 to play in the first half. The Thundering Herd outscored George Washington 15-3 over the final five minutes to push the lead to 53-35 at halftime.
Marshall hit only two of 28 shots in the second half, allowing George Washington to climb back into the game.
The Colonials pulled to 58-48 on Forchion's rebound and dunk with 14:30 to play. Monroe's long 3-pointer with 11:14 remaining cut the margin to 60-53, forcing a Marshall timeout.
Smith's jump hook in the lane gave the Colonials their first lead of the
game, 63-62, at the eight-minute mark. Leading 67-64, Monroe's two free throws
with five seconds to play sealed the win.
