FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - Sherrod Wright netted 23 points and Marko Gujanicic collected his first career double-double as George Mason dominated inside in a 68-57 win over James Madison in Colonial Athletic Association action Tuesday night.

James Madison (9-9, 3-2) led 33-28 at halftime, and maintained the advantage until Bryon Allen's free throw for the Patriots tied it 43-43 with 11:53 left. James Madison recaptured the lead three times in the ensuing 4-plus minutes, but then a 10-0 George Mason run put the Patriots up 59-50 with 5:03 left.
