George Washington Edges Maryland 77-75

WASHINGTON (AP) — Maurice Creek’s buzzer-beater pushed George Washington to a dramatic 77-75 victory over Maryland in Sunday’s BB&T Classic.
  
Early in the game, George Washington (8-1) was comfortably in the lead. After a back-and-forth first few minutes, the Colonials used a 9-1 run to take a 12-point lead.
  
George Washington’s front court took a serious blow midway through the second when both of its bigs were effectively sidelined with foul trouble. Rattling the Colonials with a strong press, the Terps (5-4) used a 19-2 run to tie the game with a minute left, forcing George Washington to turn it over eight times down the stretch.
  
A Nick Faust steal gave Maryland the ball, before Joe McDonald took it back for George Washington. The teams traded free throws, before Creek drained his dramatic shot out of a Colonial timeout.
  
Creek was among four Colonials scoring in double-digits, pacing the team with 25 points.
