NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Jonathan Arledge led five George Mason scorers in double figures with 21 points as the Patriots handed Old Dominion its 10th consecutive loss 85-74 Monday night in Colonial Athletic Association action.
The win was George Mason's fifth straight in the rivalry, played for the final time with both teams as CAA members -- Old Dominion is leaving for Conference USA at season's end.
Patrick Holloway added 13 points off the bench for the Patriots (14-9, 7-4) while Corey Edwards had 11 points and Erik Copes and Bryon Allen had 10 each from the starting lineup.
The win gives George Mason a season sweep of the Monarchs (2-20, 0-10) following a 71-46 victory on Jan. 10. Old Dominion held the Patriots' leading scorer, Sherrod Wright, to one point in the team's first meeting and kept him to nine points Monday.
DeShawn Painter led the Monarchs with 14 points.
