Villanova rallies to nip George Mason

 SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Freshman Isaiah Armwood hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 17 seconds left, rallying fifth-ranked Villanova past George Mason, 69-68, Thursday, in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.

Armwood won it for the Wildcats (3-0) with his only shot of the game. He played just 4 minutes and came off the bench after Antonio Pena and Taylor King both fouled out.

George Mason (2-1) led by 13 points in the first half. The Patriots never trailed until late in the second half, but didn’t
get off a shot after Armwood’s basket.

Scottie Reynolds scored 18 points and Corey Fisher had 17 for Villanova. Ryan Pearson led the Patriots with 14 points and Cam Long added 13.
