HONOLULU (AP) - Kevin Larsen scored 19 points with a career-high 15 rebounds and George Washington beat Ohio 77-49 in the first round of the Diamond Head Classic on Monday.

Larsen had nine rebounds during the second half in which GWU (7-3) held Ohio (3-5) to 15 points on 7-of-28 shooting.

The Colonials scored 12 straight in the second half to go up 67-45 on Patricio Garino’s free throws with 6:27 left.

Kethan Savage had 18 points, Garino added 15 and John Kopriva scored 10. George Washington had only eight turnovers and outrebounded the Bobcats 44-28.

Ryan Taylor led Ohio with 13 points. His 3-pointer late in the first half cut the Bobcats deficit to 38-34, but the Colonials closed the half on a 5-0 run and Ohio would get no closer.

GWU advances to face Colorado in the semifinals and Ohio plays DePaul on Tuesday.
