  •  

TOWSON, Md. (AP) - Sherrod Wright scored 24 points and Bryon Allen added 16 as George Mason defeated Towson 77-67 Wednesday night for its 20th consecutive victory over the Tigers.

Wright made 14 of 17 free throws for the Patriots (12-7, 5-2 Colonial Athletic Association), who clung to a 69-65 lead with 1:25 remaining. A layup by Allen made it 71-65, and two Wright free throws stretched the lead to 73-65 with 36 seconds left.

George Mason led 41-34 at the half after shooting 50 percent (15 of 30) to Towson's 34.3 percent (12 of 35). The Tigers (10-11, 5-3) were playing their third game in five days.

Rafriel Guthrie scored 18 points for Towson and Jerrelle Benimon had 16, but for the first time in seven games Benimon did not get a double-double, grabbing only eight rebounds. Bilal Dixon had 14 rebounds for Towson, which outrebounded George Mason 44-34.
