Ovie Soko had 13 points and 11 rebounds, his first double-double since Dec. 17, but George Washington continued its undefeated streak at home Wednesday night at Charles E. Smith Center in Washington, taking down Duquesne, 71-57, in an Atlantic 10 Conference match.

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

Patricio Garino scored 17 points for the Colonials and Isaiah Armwood 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. Highlands graduate Micah Mason added 11.

Joe McDonald and Maurice Creek returned after missing the Colonials' previous outing with a hip injury and illness, respectively. McDonald had six of George Washington's 23 assists.
