No. 23 VCU beats GW 74-55 in A-10 semifinals

NEW YORK (AP) - Treveon Graham scored 22 points and No. 23 VCU pressed and pressured its way into another conference tournament championship game, beating George Washington 74-55 in the Atlantic 10 semifinals on Saturday.

The second-seeded Rams (26-7) will play for the A-10 title for the second year in a row, facing fourth-seeded St. Joseph's on Sunday. Coach Shaka Smart has led the Rams to a conference tournament final in four of his five seasons, first in the Colonial Athletic Association and the past two in the A-10.

Briante Weber added 16 points for the Rams, who lost last year's final to Saint Louis, and Mo Alie-Cox provided muscle and energy off the bench with eight points, seven rebounds and a block.

Isaiah Armwood led third-seeded George Washington (24-8) with 15 points.

VCU will likely have to move on without A-10 sixth man of the year Melvin Johnson, who injured his knee early in the first half.
