Player of the Game - George Washington

Senior center D'or Fischer came up with some huge plays down the stretch to secure WVU's big 71-65 win over 20th-ranked George Washington.

Fischer scored six of WVU's last eight points as the Mountaineers held off a determined GW rally to claim the win and reamin unbeaten at 9-0.

With 1:42 to play and West Virginia clinging to a slim one-point lead, Fischer took a pass form J.D. Collins and slammed home a dunk to put WVU up by three at 66-63. Fischer next grabbed a rebound of a GW miss, and after a change of possessions hit two free throws with 32 seconds to go to put the Mountaineers up by five. Finally, Fischer hit two game-sealing free throws with six seconds remaining to eliminate all doubt and sned the sellout crowd home happy.

Fischer finished 9-10 from the line, and made three of his six attempts from the field for 15 points. He also added four rebounds, blocked three shots, and snared two steals in 25 minutes of action.
