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.
In overtime, Boston College's Lisa Macchia, who led all scorers with a career-high 23 points, converted a three-point play with 33 seconds to play to give the Eagles a 75-74 lead. Witherspoon then drove left and hit her layup for the final lead. Boston College called a timeout, and Clare Droesch's layup attempt was blocked by Ugo Oha with 2 seconds left.
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
