Last night at Smith Center:


15 Consecutive George Washington victories, giving the Colonials the nation’s longest winning streak and the best in program history. GW surpassed the streak of the 1935-36 squad.


Maureece Rice brought the ball up and launched it from just beyond halfcourt. Danilo Pinnock did the rest. The high-flying junior darted from the left side before catching the ball and dunking it to give GW a 20-19 lead midway through the first half.


Ten NBA scouts, including Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Danny Ferry, were at Smith Center. Many were there to get a firsthand look at La Salle’s Steve Smith. The Colonials also have a pair of NBA prospects in Pops Mensah-Bonsu and Mike Hall. Smith, Mensah-Bonsu and Hall each entered the NBA Draft after last season before returning to school. … GW’s Montrell McDonald missed a second game as part of his indefinite suspension for breaking team rules. The freshman guard had been one of the Colonials’ top reserves.
