    FAIRFAX, VA (AP) -- Tony Skinn and Will Thomas both scored 16 points to lead George Mason to a 66-47 win over Old Dominion on Saturday.

    The Patriots (15-5, 9-2 Colonial Athletic Association) took control by shooting 75 percent from the field in the first half, which helped build a 42-19 halftime lead.

    Skinn scored 14 of his points in the first half, and helped force Old Dominion (15-6, 8-3) into 20 total turnovers.

    Old Dominion ended the game with two fewer field goals (18) than turnovers, and its top three scorers -- Isaiah Hunter, Alex Loughton and Arnaud Dahi -- combined for just 13 points.

    Valdas Vasylius scored 13 points to lead the Monarchs, who won this year's earlier meeting, 54-53, on a 3-pointer with 0.7 seconds left in the game.

    The Patriots didn't give Old Dominion a chance to steal a late victory on Saturday. They held a 20-9 lead midway through the first half and Folarin Campbell's layup three minutes into the second half gave George Mason its biggest lead of the game at 46-21.

    George Mason has now won 14 of 17 since it started the season 1-2.
