    NEWARK, Del. -- Marc Egerson had 20 points and 14 rebounds and Delaware held on to defeat George Mason 66-58 Thursday night.

    Egerson, the only player in the Colonial Athletic Association averaging a double-double this season, scored 15 points in the first half -- including three 3-pointers -- to help the Blue Hens (11-15, 5-9) build a 42-28 halftime lead.

    Delaware increased the margin to 17, but the Patriots (16-8, 9-5) used a 12-0 run to close within 47-46 with 8:13 left.

    Daryl Monroe, who scored 27 points, hit two baskets to give George Mason a 54-52 lead with 4:14 remaining.

    After a Monroe dunk, the Blue Hens held the Patriots to two Monroe free throws in the final 1:40, avenging the 78-55 loss to George Mason on Jan. 27.

    After a 14-3 start, the Patriots are 2-5, with all five losses on the road.

    Jawan Carter added 19 points for Delaware.
