    WASHINGTON -- Tu Holloway's layup with 30 seconds to play capped off a great night for the senior guard as his 21 points, seven assists and six rebounds led Xavier to a 59-58 win over George Washington on Wednesday night.

    Holloway easily maneuvered past the Colonials for the decisive score. With 1:14 to play, his layup cut George Washington's lead to 58-57.

    Xavier (15-7, 6-3 Atlantic 10 Conference) held the Colonials (8-14, 3-5) scoreless for the last 3:22.

    Tony Taylor led George Washington with 20 points. Nemanja Mikic scored 19 points and Lasan Kromah had 11 points and a career-high 13 rebounds.

    There were nine lead changes in the last 9 minutes, and neither team committed a turnover in the last 10 minutes.

    Taylor and Mikic combined to shoot 9 of 14 from 3-point range.

    In the last 4 seconds, the Colonials' Bryan Bynes, Dwayne Smith and Kromah missed shots.
