    FAIRFAX, Va. -- Cam Long scored 22 points and George Mason rallied late to beat Creighton 75-72 on Saturday.

Luke Hancock?s dunk off a steal by Andre Cornelius put George Mason (5-5) up 75-72 with 5 seconds left to play.

    Justin Carter?s 3-point attempt at the buzzer rimmed out as the Blue Jays (3-5), who led for the majority of the second half, remained winless away from home.
