George Mason rallies past UNI for 77-71 win

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- Kwadzo Ahelegbe dropped 26 for UNI but the Panther's effort to end George Mason's winning streak fell short as the Patriots left town with a 77 - 71 victory.

UNI led 42-32 shortly after halftime, but saw that lead erode over the next 15 minutes.  The Panthers pulled within 2 in the final seconds, but a costly turnover with less than 15 seconds left sealed UNI's fate.

Ryan Pearson scored 21 for the visiting Patriots as they extended the nation's longest active winning streak to 13 straight games.
