WASHINGTON (AP) - J.R. Pinnock's 23 points and 8 rebounds led George Washington to a 94-70 win over Morgan State Saturday afternoon.
After trailing 44-45 at the half, George Washington (1-1, 0-0 Atlantic 10) went on a 22-9 run highlighted by two T.J. Thompson 3-pointers to take a 66-54 lead. The Colonials cruised to their 16th straight home opening win.
George Washington pressed early and pushed the ball down court to go up 23-16. But Morgan State (0-3, 0-0 MEAC) was not worn down, scoring 8 unanswered points to grab a lead 24-23 at the 9:29 mark.
Morgan State's offense centered on the three-point shot, hitting 10 of 21 attempts. George Washington relied fast breaks and the inside game, outscoring the Golden Bears 44-22 in the paint.
Sam Brand paced the Golden Bears with 27 points, making five three-pointers. Christopher Grant and Joseph McLean added 16 and 15 respectively for Morgan State.
Always-acrobatic Pops Mensah-Bonsu scored 21 points, including a handful of eye-catching dunks.
