Long, George Mason hold off Delaware 77-66

Jan 28, 2010 - 2:25 AM FAIRFAX, Va.(AP) -- Cam Long scored 18 points and George Mason jumped out to a big halftime advantage to defeat Delaware 77-66 on Wednesday night.

The Patriots (14-7, 9-1 Colonial Athletic Association) won their sixth straight game and 16th in a row at home against a conference opponent.

After George Mason took a 38-17 halftime lead, the Blue Hens used a 6-0 run - capped by a steal and layup by Alphonso Dawson - to pull within 66-54 with 4:08 remaining. Delaware, however, wasn't unable to cut the deficit to single digits as the Patriots sealed the win at the foul line, hitting 8 of 10 free throws down the stretch.

Andre Cornelius scored 12 of his 13 points in the first half for the Patriots.

Jawan Carter had 23 points for the Blue Hens (6-15, 2-8), who shot 50 percent from the field (20-for-40) in the second half after shooting just 23 percent (7-for-30) in the first half.
