Sherrod Wright scored 26 points, Bryon Allen had 21 and Jalen Jenkins added 16 points and nine rebounds to lead the Patriots (7-10, 0-3), who lost for the eighth time in 10 games. George Mason was seeking its first win over a ranked opponent in over six years.

Williams, who entered the game second in the country in assists at 7.5 per game, shot 11 for 17 from the field — including a layup to draw the Minutemen to 87-86 with 18 seconds remaining. Williams’ basket came after the first of two costly late turnovers by Wright.

The second turnover by Wright, on a steal in the backcourt by Williams, led to Gordon’s game-winner off a missed layup by Williams.
