FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) Joe McDonald hit a game-tying layup with three seconds remaining to help George Washington avoid a monumental collapse, and the Colonials beat Miami 71-63 in overtime in the opening game of the Wooden Legacy on Thursday morning.

McDonald's clutch layup tied the game at 59 after George Washington (5-0) had blown a late double-digit lead, and the Colonials opened the extra period on a 12-2 run to secure the win and extend their best start to a season in four years.

Nemanja Mikic scored a team-high 16 points off the bench and Isaiah Armwood had 12 points and 11 rebounds to lead GW, which was up 47-35 with 10:47 remaining but couldn't hold it.

Garrius Adams scored a game-high 17 points for the Hurricanes (3-3), including 15 in the second half. Rion Brown added 16 points and nine rebounds and James Kelly scored 11 points off the bench.
