The home team posted a 100-92 triumph.
The Panthers trailed by eight at halftime. Both teams scored 48 points in the second half, so the margin of victory for the Beavers was still eight points.
Jarred Johnson led the GU scoring list with 19 points. Keishun Thomas had 17 points and Carlos Crespo 14.
