BOSTON (AP) - Chris Monroe scored 25 points and George Washington went on a 13-1 run in the second half on Wednesday night for a 68-55 win over Boston University.
The Colonials (4-3), who snapped a two-game losing streak that included losses to Texas and Maryland in the BB&T Classic over the weekend, held BU (3-4) to just three points over a 14:04 stretch of the second half.
The Colonials turned a two-point deficit into a 56-46 lead midway through the half.
The Terriers took a 45-43 lead on a 3-point play by Rashad Bell with 15:33 left, but George Washington went on a 13-1 run to take control. Pops Mensah-Bonsu's put-back with 8:04 left gave the Colonials a 10-point lead, and BU never got closer than eight after that.
George Washington trailed by as many as eight in the first half, but went on an 11-0 run in the final 2:16 to take a 39-35 halftime lead. Monroe, who scored 16 points in the first half, hit a 3-pointer at the 1:38 mark to give the Colonials a 36-35 lead.
