NEWARK, Del. (AP) Kyle Anderson scored 21 points as Delaware upset George Mason 65-60 Wednesday night in a Colonial Athletic Association game.
Twelve of Anderson’s points came in the first half as the Blue Hens (10-12, 6-6) took a 27-15 lead with 7:00 left in the first half and led 32-24 at the break. All 12 of Anderson’s first-half points came on four 3-pointers and helped end George Mason’s six-game winning streak.
The first-place Patriots (18-6, 10-2) started slowly. Ryan Pearson scored 10 of his 25 points in the first half and Mike Morrison had nine. But no teammate scored more than two points before intermission. Morrison managed two points in the second half, although Sherrod Wright came off the George Mason bench to score 12.
Anderson got support from Jamelle Hagins and Devon Saddler (13 points each). Delaware hit seven treys to George Mason’s three and outrebounded the Blue Hens 43-29.
