From combined dispatches

GEORGE WASHINGTON 76, UNC WILMINGTON 71: Sophomore Aaron Ware scored a game-high 16 points in leading the Colonials to their fifth straight season-opening victory with a triumph over the Seahawks in Wilmington, N.C.

The game was a rematch of GW’s thrilling overtime victory in the first round of the 2006 NCAA tournament at Greensboro, N.C. The Colonials (1-0) are 7-2 in season openers under ninth-year coach Karl Hobbs.

GEORGE MASON 60, DARTMOUTH 44: Ryan Pearson had 19 points as the Patriots overcame a slow start for a victory over the Big Green at Patriot Center.

The win was the 18th straight at home for the Patriots (2-0).

George Mason led just 28-24 at halftime but came alive midway through the second half.

The Patriots used a fullcourt, pressing defense to spark a 9-0 run and take a 41-30 lead with 12:05 to play. George Mason then put the game away with a 12-0 run that pushed the lead to 56-36 with four minutes remaining.

NAVY 79, LONGWOOD 76: O.J. Avworo and Romeo Garcia scored 16 points each, and the Midshipmen defeated the Lancers in Farmville, Va.

Jordan Sugars and Chris Harris added 14 and 13 points for the Midshipmen.

Navy (1-1) shot 50 percent (13-for-26) in the first half, including 5-for-10 from the 3-point line to build a 40-37 halftime lead.
