After a competitive first half that saw the two teams go back and forth, it was the George Mason Patriots who pulled away in the second half against Old Dominion to win 62-45.

The first half was one where ODU was leading most of the way. It wasn't until just before the break that George Mason was able to wrestle away the lead from the Monarchs, going into the locker room with a 24-23 lead. Once the Patriots walked back onto the court after the break, it was George Mason's show the rest of the way. Forward Ryan Pearson led the way for the Patriots with 18 points and 11 rebounds. Cam Long pitched in with 14 points, and forward Mike Morrison was the third Patriot in double figures with 10.
