FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — Yuri Collins went coast-to-coast and scored on a layup with one second left in the second overtime to lift Saint Louis to a 92-90 win over George Mason on Wednesday night.
Collins tied the game with 2:04 left in the first overtime and neither team scored again to force the second extra period. Josh Oduro pulled George Mason even at at 90-90 on a 3-pointer with :05 left, but Collins took the in-bounds pass and drove into the lane for the game-winning runner.

Francis Okoro added 14 points and grabbed nine rebounds and Jordan Nesbitt added another 14 points for Saint Louis (15-6, 6-2 Atlantic 10).
Oduro equaled his season high with 32 points to lead the Patriots. Devon Cooper had 22 points, D’Shawn Schwartz added 15 points and nine rebounds and Davonte Gaines added a double-double with 12 points and 17 rebounds.
