|Bradley Edges George Washington 67-66
|WASHINGTON (AP) -- Walt Lemon Jr. hit a 3-pointer with 46 seconds left to snap a tie and Bradley held on for a 67-66 win at George Washington on Thursday night.
The Colonials had a chance to win as time expired after Tony Taylor's two free throws cut the Bradley lead to the final margin with 23 seconds left.
Bradley inbounded the ball and Jake Eastman was tied up by George Washington's Bryan Bynes with the possession arrow favoring the Colonials. With time running out, Taylor drove to the left, but his jumper was blocked by Lemon. Lasan Kromah's follow-up fell short at the buzzer.
Lemon led all scorers with 22 points and Taylor Brown finished with 15 for Bradley (5-4).
Aaron Ware led four Colonials in double figures with 13 points. John Kopriva added 12, Taylor 11 and Kromah 10.
George Washington (4-6) lost its fifth straight.
