WASHINGTON (AP) - Marsheik Witherspoon's driving layup with 10 seconds left in overtime gave George Washington a 76-75 victory over No. 23 Boston College on Wednesday.
The basket was Witherspoon's second of the game.
The Colonials (4-2) looked as if they had the game locked up when they led 62-49 with 6:22 left in regulation. But, the Eagles (7-1) outscored George Washington 18-5 and forced the overtime on a jumper at the buzzer by Maureen Leary.

Anna Montanana led George Washington with 19 points, while Cathy Joens added 18 and Oha had 16.
Amber Jacobs had 17 points for the Eagles, who were off to the best start in
