GEO WASHINGTON 60, CREIGHTON 53

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Isaiah Armwood is one George Washington's
top scorers and Sunday night he showed he's also one of the
Colonials' best defenders.

Armwood got the job of guarding Creighton's leading scorer and
was up to the challenge, holding Doug McDermott nearly 21 points
below his season average to lead the Colonials to one of their
biggest wins in years, a 60-53 victory over the 20th-ranked
Bluejays in the Wooden Legacy consolation game Sunday night.

"We just tried to make everything tough for him (McDermott),"
Armwood said. "We switched to man from 1-3-1 a little bit. We
knew he wasn't that good off the dribble so we tried to limit
his touches."

McDermott came in averaging nearly 28 points per game but
finished with seven, ending a streak of eight consecutive games
with 20 or more points that dated to last season. The last time
McDermott was held to single digits was in a win over Indiana
State on Jan. 5.

Ethan Wragge scored 16 points and Grant Gibbs added 12 for
Bluejays (5-2).

"We gambled by not doubling (McDermott)," Colonials coach Mike
Lonergan said. "They have like four guys who shoot 50 percent
from 3, so we didn't want to let all those other guys get open
3s. Thanks to Isaiah's great defense, we got away with not
doubling him."

It almost turned out to be a costly decision. Wragge scored just
one 3-point basket in the first half, but scored 3 in the second
half to help the Bluejays retake the lead.

While Wragge became a force from the outside, Gibbs used his big
body to do some damage in the paint.

"We're the type of team that has to be absolutely invested in
our game plan because we don't have incredible athletes, so
every mistake we make is completely on us," Wragge said. "Moving
forward, we have to be completely dialed in on both ends of the
floor. Anytime we slip away from that is when we play poorly."

Gibbs tied the score 42-all with 8:26 left in the game and the
teams wrestled their way to the finish.

Creighton pulled ahead 53-50 when Jahenns Manigat picked up
Wragge's 3-point miss and scored with 2:14 left. The Colonials
(6-1) regained the lead on consecutive layups by Kevin Larsen
and Joe McDonald. They closed out the win at the free throw
line, catching a break when Creighton's' Devin Brooks was called
for an offensive foul with 14 seconds left.

Larsen led four Colonials in double figures with 14 points.
McDonald and Armwood scored 12 apiece and Kethan Savage finished
with 10.

Creighton entered the game shooting nearly 51 percent from the
field, but the Bluejays struggled offensively from the start.
McDermott, who averaged 28.5 points in the first two games of
the Wooden Legacy, was held to four points on 2-of-7 shooting
and the Bluejays shot 30 percent from the field in the first
half.

Before Will Artino's reverse layup cut George Washington's lead
to 25-15 with 6 minutes left before the break, Creighton had
gone 4 of 15 from the field to start the game.

Artino's basket seemed to give the Bluejays some momentum. They
converted two of their next three field-goal attempts, though
they had trouble making defensive stops. The Colonials continued
to keep the pressure up and took a 32-24 lead into halftime.
