FAIRFAX, Va. -- Luke Hancock had 16 points and nine rebounds as George Mason extended its winning streak to three games with a 71-47 victory over Drexel on Wednesday night.
The Patriots (13-5, 5-2 Colonial Athletic Association) remained undefeated in nine home games, overcoming a slow start in which they missed their first five shots and trailed 4-2 in the first 5 minutes. But Hancock's layup ended the drought and George Mason went on a 15-4 run en route to a 37-30 halftime advantage.
With the Dragons (11-6, 3-4) struggling offensively and in foul trouble, the Patriots opened the second half with a 12-4 run for a 49-34 lead on a layup by Andre Cornelius with 16:25 remaining.
The margin didn't dip below 14 from that point.
Drexel shot just 32 percent from the field and Chris Fouch, the conference's second-leading scorer at 17.2 points a game entering the game, was the first of three Dragons to foul out, with 5:25 to play. He led Drexel with 11 points.
