George Mason High School
Nate Ogle scored 17 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead Mason to a 60-41 win over The Avalon School Friday at MEH. Noel Obusan added 12 points and dished out a team-high 8 assists as GM (3-1) shook off a pesky Black Knight squad and won going away 60-41.
GM was on fire out of the gate Friday as Philippe Griffiths (9 points) nailed three first quarter triples, with Ogle adding one of his own, staking the hosts to a 16-7 lead after one. Avalon took advantage of some sloppy play by the Mason in the second however, and coupled with Griffiths third personal foul of the half, took a 23-22 lead into the locker room at the break. The third quarter and first four minutes of the fourth were all Mason though, with the Stangs going on a 26-6 run bridging the two periods to put the game away. Junior Will Nunley had a breakout game for GM, scoring 9 points, and classmate Nick Bourbeau was a sparkplug off the bench, dishing out 4 assists to go along with 3 steals.
Mason travels to Madison County Tuesday night to take on the Mountaineers in the Bull Run District opener for both teams before hosting Clarke County Thursday at MEH. Game time is 7:45 for both contests.
