FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) Stanford Robinson hit 4 of 4 free throws in the final 45 seconds and finished with a career-high 21 points, E.C. Matthews scored 18 and Rhode Island beat George Mason 77-74 on Saturday to snap a two-game skid.

Robinson scored 13 points in the final eight minutes and Kuran Iverson had nine second-half points and grabbed eight rebounds for Rhode Island (17-9, 9-5 Atlantic 10) which has won three in a row against the Patriots and pulled into a tie with Richmond for third in the conference standings.

Matthews made a layup and then a jumper to give the Rams an 18-point lead early in the second half but they hit just 1 of 10 shots over the next seven minutes. Marquis Moore scored seven points during a 22-4 run that made it 55-all and a 3-point play by Jalen Jenkins gave George Mason a 72-71 lead - its first since 2-0 - with 1:01 remaining. Robinson's free throws made 75-72 with 25 second left and, after Matthews capped the scoring with a foul shot 20 seconds later, his steal with two seconds to go sealed it.

Jenkins hit career-high 14 free throws and finished with 22 points for George Mason (18-9, 8-6). Moore added 19 points and 10 rebounds - his 17th double-double this season.
