George Mason uses balance to beat NC Central 77-65

FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) Otis Livingston II was 7-for-10 shooting and scored 17 points to help George Mason to a 77-65 win against North Carolina Central on Saturday.

Raasean Davis scored the first eight points for the Eagles before Jaire Grayer's jumper put George Mason (5-5) ahead for good. Grayer's basket began a 14-7 run and the Patriots led 20-13 after Goanar Mar's jumper. Greg Calixte's tip-in off an offensive rebound extended the lead to 33-22 with 2:17 before halftime.

The Patriots led by double figures for most of the second half and ended a two-game skid. Justin Kier scored 14 points, Mar, 13 and Grayer, 10. George Mason was 29 of 55 from the field (53 percent). It was George Mason's second win in its last six games.

Davis tied a career high with 21 points and eight rebounds and Pablo Rivas scored 13 for NC Central (4-7) now 1-6 on the road.
