Nov 28, 2003
WASHINGTON - Mike Hall and T.J. Thompson each scored 18 points as George Washington improved to 3-0 by defeating Appalachian State, 76-62, Friday and reach the championship game of the Red Auerbach Colonial Classic for the 10th straight year.
George Washington, which improved to 19-0 in its tournament, led by as many as 17 in the second half only to see the Mountaineers (1-3) cut the lead three times to six points.
The Colonials will face William & Mary in Saturday's title game, after the Tribe advanced in Friday's other game with an 80-60 win over St. Francis (NY).
Jonathan Mitchell scored 13 to lead the Mountaineers, who pulled within six with 4:24 to play after Chris McFarland made a free throw.
Appalachian State failed to score on consecutive trips that could have cut into the lead further, but missed a 3-pointer and a short jumper in the lane.
Hall, however, turned the momentum the other way by grabbing an important
offensive rebound, drawing a foul and sinking two free throws with 2:34
remaining to push the lead back to eight. Hall flirted with a double-double with his season-high 18 points and nine rebounds. GW freshman guard Carl Elliott, making his third straight start, dished out a season-high nine assists in the victory.
