    FAIRFAX, Va. -- Cam Ward scored a career-high 21 points, including nine straight to spark a key second-half run, and George Mason defeated Radford 67-55 on Friday night.

    Dre Smith added 12 points for Mason, and the Patriots (7-2) shot 10 of 19 from 3-point range to win their second straight and preserve a perfect home record.

    Radford's Artsiom Parakhouski had 11 points and 10 rebounds for his fourth double-double of the season. Martell McDuffy scored 14 points for the Highlanders (3-7) in their third straight loss.

    Ward, who added five assists and finished 5-for-6 from 3-point range, hit consecutive 3-pointers to cap a 9-0 stretch where Mason pushed its lead to 57-42. A few possessions later, back-to-back 3-pointers from Louis Birdson and John Vaughan made it 65-48.

    Vaughan finished with 11 points, pushing the senior's career total to 1,004.
