    The win, in front of a sellout crowd at the Smith Center, was the third straight for the Colonials (15-5, 7-3) and kept them in first place in the West Division of the Atlantic 10.

    Reserve J.R. Pinnock had 16 points, Omar Williams 15 and Mike Hall added 11 points and 14 rebounds for George Washington.

    The Colonials' bench outscored Richmond's 36-17.

    Kevin Steenberge had 19 points and Andres Sandoval added 10 for the Spiders (11-11, 6-5), who lost their second straight game.

    Richmond was 2-for-18 from 3-point range and was outscored 42-30 in the paint.

    Trailing by as many as 13 points in the first half, Richmond used a 10-3 run, including a 3 by Sandoval at the buzzer, to get within 37-34 at halftime.

    Richmond won the teams' earlier meeting by 11 points.
