    WASHINGTON -- Marcus Johnson made three free throws -- the first two after a technical foul on George Washington for having six players on the court -- as Dayton escaped with a 63-61 victory on Thursday night.

    The Colonials were assessed the technical when the Flyers (17-2, 3-1 Atlantic 10 Conference) attempted to inbound the ball at their own end with 21.9 seconds left.

    Wright made both free throws for a 62-61 lead. He was fouled again when Dayton inbounded and made the first of two free throws with 21.3 seconds left.

    Tony Taylor missed a 3-point attempt with 2.5 seconds left and Rob Diggs' putback rimmed out as the horn sounded.

    Johnson had 17 points to lead Dayton, which has won three straight and nine of its last 10. Chris Wright added 15 points.

    Wynton Witherspoon had 19 points and seven rebounds to lead George Washington (6-10, 0-4), which lost its eighth straight.
