FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — Corey Allen, Jr. hit a floater with two seconds remaining as South Florida came back from a 17-point second-half deficit to beat George Mason, 68-66, Wednesday night.

Allen finished with 19 points, Victor Rudd had 15 and Chris Perry added 14 for the Bulls (5-2), which had a 23-1 run in the second half and snapped a two-game losing streak. The loss dropped the Patriots to 5-3.

George Mason opened the second half with a 19-7 run and held a 53-36 advantage after a layup by Marko Gujanicic with 12:19 remaining. But the Bulls responded with their run, running off 18 straight points and using the 23-1 run to take a 59-54 lead with 4:57 to play.

Bryon Allen’s 3-pointer with 4:33 remaining, which ended the Bulls’ run, was the Patriots’ lone field goal during an 11-minute stretch.

Sherrod Wright paced George Mason with 22 points.
