George Mason vs New Mexico

New Mexico 70, George Mason 69

  •  

ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) - Tony Snell hit a 3-pointer with 1.8 seconds left, giving New Mexico a 70-69, come-from-behind victory over George Mason in the Paradise Jam on Sunday.

George Mason went ahead, 69-64, on a pair of free throws with 17.7 seconds left. But Kendall Williams hit a 3-pointer with 11.9 seconds remaining, and then stole the inbounds pass. The ball wound up in the hands of Snell, who made the game-winner from the left wing. It marked the Lobos' only lead of the second half.

George Mason's desperation heave at the buzzer was far off the mark.

Snell scored a game-high 27 points for New Mexico (3-0). Williams added 14 points for the Lobos.

Sherrod Wright finished with 22 points for George Mason (2-2), which led by as many as eight points in the second half.
