FAIRFAX, Va. - Taleia Moton scored a career-high 33 points to lift George Mason to a 85-69 win Sunday afternoon at the Patriot Center.

George Mason improves to 6-1 on the year and 1-0 in the CAA while ODU drops to 1-8 overall and 0-1 in conference play.

Mason pushed its lead to 16 on a jumper from Moton and ODU would get no closer the rest of the way.

Tia Lewis scored the first eight points of the second half for ODU while Moton scored 7-of-9 for Mason. Mason pushed its lead to 16 midway through the half but Mairi Buchan and Shakeva Richards hit a pair of jumpers and JoNiquia Guilford knocked down two free throws to make the lead 62-50.

ODU grabbed an 8-7 lead on a Jackie Cook jumper but Mason countered with a 10-0 run, six points coming from Taleia Moton, to take a 17-8 lead. A long jumper from the top of the key from Mairi Buchan stopped the run.

The Lady Monarchs cut the lead to 19-14 on a jumper from Richards and layup by Myeisha Hall, but George Mason rallied with an 12-1 spurt to take a 31-15 advantage.
