USF Men Hang On To Beat George Mason 61-57

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Jawanza Poland scored 16 points as South Florida beat George Mason 61-57 Saturday night in a game that saw a scary injury involving Bulls’ point guard Anthony Collins.

Collins was hurt with 10:30 to go in the second half, which resulted in the South Florida sophomore having his neck and head stabilized before being taken off the court on the stretcher.

It appeared that Collins’ head hit the knee of another player. He did have movement in his arms and legs.

No other information on Collins’ injury was immediately available.

Sherrod Wright had 24 points for George Mason (7-5). The guard became the first Patriots’ player to have 20 or more points in four straight games since Jason Miskiri in January 1999.

South Florida (8-3) also got 14 points from Martino Brock.
