Mason jars Eagles
Georgia Southern forward Briana Jones, left, finds herself surrounded by Georgie Mason's Talisha Watts, center, and Janaa Pickard after grabbing an offensive rebound during the second half at Hanner Fieldhouse Monday.
An opportunistic first half kept Georgia Southern within striking distance, but George Mason exploded for 51 second-half points and ran away from the Eagles in an 85-64 win on Monday at Hanner Fieldhouse. The game was fought mostly in the paint, with the Patriots (6-7) getting 47 points under the basket. Janaa Pickard led the frontcourt with 19 points and a game-high 13 rebounds.
