PHILADELPHIA -- Langston Galloway scored a season-high 26 points to lead Saint Joseph's to a 71-59 victory over George Washington Saturday in Atlantic 10 action.
The Hawks (15-10, 6-6) scored the game's first 12 points, then took an early 20-2 lead. Later in the half, despite a 9-0 run by the Colonials (12-13, 6-6), the Hawks led 40-29 at halftime.
In the second half, George Washington scored five straight points to close within 59-52. But Galloway hit a 3-pointer and the Hawks led by double figures the rest of the way.
Galloway's season-high point total came on 10-of-17 shooting from the floor. He hit 6 of 9 shots from 3-point range.
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
