Recap: George Mason vs. Delaware

Fairfax, VA (Sports Network) - Jarvis Threatt scored 20 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for his first career double-double, as the Delaware Blue Hens outlasted the George Mason Patriots, 79-72, in a Colonial Athletic Association tilt at the Patriot Center.

Devon Saddler led all scorers with 22 points to go along with eight rebounds for the Blue Hens (12-12, 7-4 CAA), while Josh Brinkley finished with 17 points on 6-of-7 shooting from the floor.

Jonathan Arledge had 15 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Patriots (14-10, 7-5), who had won the previous 10 meetings at home against UD. Erik Copes also recorded a double-double with 13 points and 10 boards, while Bryon Allen (eight assists) and Sherrod Wright scored 12 apiece in the loss.

UD made seven of its first nine shots from the floor to take an early 17-11 lead, but the Blue Hens cooled off considerably as they went on to shoot just 34.5 percent in the opening frame. Still, they led, 33-29, at the break.
