FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) Damion Lee scored 29 points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 22 seconds remaining, as Drexel rebounded from a 20-point first-half deficit to defeat George Mason 58-54 Thursday night.

Lee scored 20 of his points in the second half, when the Dragons (9-12, 5-4 Colonial Athletic Association) outscored the Patriots 33-16 en route to their fourth win in five games.

Drexel used a 9-0 run midway through the second half to take its first lead of the game, 50-49, with 7:17 remaining. The Patriots (12-9, 5-4) had only two field goals over the final 10:51.

Lee's performance came three days after he scored 30 points in a 66-64 loss at Delaware.

Sherrod Wright scored 15 points and Jonathan Arledge 14 for George Mason. Arledge was starting in place of forward Johnny Williams, the team's second-leading scorer, who sat out after suffering a concussion in the Patriots' loss at Northeastern on Sunday.
