WASHINGTON (AP) - Johnny Selvie scored 20 points, and reserve Ben Gordon added 19 points as Connecticut beat George Washington 84-76 Sunday to advance to the finals of the BB&T Classic.
Caron Butler had 14 points and eight rebounds for the Huskies (3-0), who will face No. 5 Maryland in the championship game Monday night.
UConn improved to 5-0 lifetime at MCI Center and 4-1 all time against George Washington. The Huskies are unbeaten in three career games against Maryland.
UConn coach Jim Calhoun prevailed in his first meeting against first-year Colonials coach Karl Hobbs, a former Huskies player who was an assistant under Calhoun from 1994-2001.
Selvie, who hit 8-of-10 shots from the field for 16 first-half points, scored the first points of the game 20 seconds deep on a layup, and UConn never trailed.
Midway through the half, a 14-6 run turned the Huskies' 8-7 edge into a 22-13 lead with 10:48 left in the half.
Justin Brown had six points during the burst, which also featured 3-pointers by Tony Robertson and Gordon.
The Colonials were 13-of-38 from the field in the first half and trailed 49-36 at halftime. The Huskies converted eight George Washington turnovers into 14 first-half points.
Selvie and UConn's Taliek Brown fouled out late in the second half, and the
Colonials got within 77-69 on a short jumper by Jaason Smith with 2:40
