WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) - George Washington continued its undefeated streak at home Wednesday night, taking down Duquesne 71-57.

It was a bounce-back victory for head coach Mike Lonergan and the Colonials (18-4, 6-2 Atlantic 10) after falling at Dayton last week. The Dukes (10-11, 2-6), meanwhile, lost their second straight.

Patricio Garino scored 17 points for the Colonials, followed by Nemanja Mikic, with 11 and Isaiah Armwood, who posted his eighth double-double of the season with 14 points and 11 rebounds. Kevin Larsen rounded out George Washington's double-digit scorers, with 13 points.

Dominique McKoy led the way for Duquesne with 14 points, along with Ovie Soko, who had 13 and Micah Mason, who added 11.

Joe McDonald and Maurice Creek returned after missing the Colonials' last outing with a hip injury and illness, respectively. McDonald had six of George Washington's 23 assists but Creek was quiet, possibly hampered by lingering illness.
