KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It took Georgia coach Mark Fox going against his principles to beat George Washington.After having a tough time guarding the Colonials with his trademark man-to-man defense, Fox made the rare move to slap on a zone, and that allowed the Bulldogs to keep the Colonials at arms length in an 81-73 victory Monday night in the semifinals of the CBE Classic.It was really back-and-forth for much of the game, Fox said. I thought our move to the zone, which makes my skin curl, really helped us, but we were having a hard time guarding them.Yante Maten and J.J. Frazier scored 18 points apiece for the Bulldogs (3-1), who were celebrating the induction of former coach Hugh Durham and famed alum Dominique Wilkins into the College Basketball Hall of Fame on Friday night by notching their third straight win.The Bulldogs will face No. 5 Kansas in the tournament title game Tuesday night, while the Colonials (3-1) will play Alabama-Birmingham in the consolation game.Well, its good for our basketball team because were playing good basketball teams. Its big for our program because we just put two of our greats in the Hall of Fame, Fox said. We needed to show well, so Im really proud that we played a fairly clean game.Derek Ogbeide had 11 points and eight rebounds Georgia, which led for 31 minutes but never by more than eight points. Juwan Parker had nine points and 11 boards.I mean, thats an SEC team. Theyre big inside, said Tyler Cavanaugh, who led George Washington with 21 points. We didnt block off at crucial times, myself at the end of the game. It cost us.George Washington knotted the game 68-all on a three-point play by Yuta Watanabe with just over four minutes remaining, but the Bulldogs responded with the next six points. Then they answered Cavanaughs 3-pointer from the wing with a three-point play from Papa Diatta that helped put the game away.I thought for a big part of the game we did a great job. It was neck-and-neck there, George Washington coach Maurice Joseph said. Little plays here and there eventually cost us the game.Josh Hart was 5 of 6 from beyond the arc and had 17 points for George Washington, the reigning NIT champions. Watanabe added 14 points but was just 1 of 5 from beyond the arc.Thats a good team, Cavanaugh said. We just have to keep getting better.BACK AND FORTHThe game was tied 10 times and there were 12 lead changes, but the Colonials never led by more than three points. That advantage came early in the second half, when they built on a 36-35 halftime lead.BIG PICTUREGeorge Washington struggled on the boards and in the paint, and it proved costly in the final minutes. Diattas three-point play to help put the game away came after Georgias second offensive board of the possession as the Bulldogs outscored the Colonials inside, 40-18.Georgia won in coach Mark Foxs return to the area. Fox was born in Garden City, Kansas, and began his playing career at Garden City Community College. He later spent six years as an assistant coach for Kansas State before moving on to Nevada, where he eventually became the head coach.UP NEXTGeorge Washington plays the Blazers for third place.Georgia plays the Jayhawks for the title.
