FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - Patrick Holloway scored 10 of his game-high 15 points in the first half and George Mason got key contributions from several bench players as it pulled away in the second half for a 71-46 win over Old Dominion on Thursday night.
Paris Bennett and Vertrail Vaughns combined to score all the Patriots' points during a 15-4 run midway through the second half that gave George Mason (9-6, 2-1 Colonial Athletic Association) a 49-30 advantage over its in-state rivals.
The win snapped a two-game home losing streak for the Patriots, who had previously won 14 straight at home. The loss was the 13th in 14 games for the Monarchs (2-14, 0-4).
The Patriots' substitutes combined for 58 points on a night when leading-scorer Sherrod Wright had just one point and missed all five of his field goal attempts. George Mason's five starters totaled 13 points on 5-of-17 shooting.
