    WILLIAMSBURG, Va. -- Dre Smith scored 14 points to lead George Mason in a 61-57 win over William & Mary on Wednesday night.

    John Vaughan added 13 points and Darryl Monroe had 12 for the Patriots (13-3, 6-0 Colonial Athletic Association), who are off to their best ever start in the CAA. Smith also went 4-for-7 from beyond the arc and Monroe grabbed nine rebounds.

    Danny Sumner led the Tribe (6-10, 1-5) with 17 points and David Schneider chipped in with 15.

    The Patriots shot 46.9 percent from the field (23 of 49) for the game compared to just a 36.7 percent mark (22 of 60) for the Tribe.

    After trailing by three points at the break, Schneider's layup with 2:14 left pulled the Tribe even at 55-all. But Vaughan hit four free throws in George Mason's 6-2 run the rest of the way to seal the win.
