Last second magic sends VCU to second straight dramatic road win

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WWBT/AP) -

JeQuan Lewis drilled two free throws with 0.4 seconds left and VCU needed a crazy finish to earn its fifth-straight win 54-53 over George Washington on Wednesday night.
    
VCU (19-5, 9-2 Atlantic 10) held a 52-50 lead when Lewis missed the front end of a one-and-one that could have iced the game. On the ensuing possession, George Washington's Yuta Watanabe drilled a 3-pointer with 0.4 seconds left which appeared to give the Colonials the game.
    
During VCU's subsequent inbounds play, Lewis drew a charging foul on George Washington's Collin Goss. The foul sent Lewis to the line, where he made both to put VCU in front 54-53.
    
Jair Bolden missed a final 3-point attempt for the Colonials (12-12, 4-7).
    
Justin Tillman scored 11 points and Samir Doughty had 10 to lead VCU.
    
Bolden and Tyler Cavanaugh each scored 13 points for George Washington.
