Jelani Hewitt scored a game-high 38 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for Georgia Southern (3-5), and Tre Bussey scored 19.

Mason hit two jumpers, a layup and a dunk in OT to give Campbell a 73-69 lead, but Hewitt made four free throws to tie it at 73. Bussey hauled in a defensive rebound and the Eagles had a chance to win, but Ray stole the ball and made a layup at the buzzer, his only points of the night.
