FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) -Chaisson Allen hit two of three free throws with .5 seconds left after getting fouled on a 30-foot 3-point attempt to give Northeastern a 50-48 victory over George Mason on Saturday.
Matt Janning led Northeastern (19-11, 14-4 Colonial Athletic Association) with 18 points, including a 3-pointer to tie the game at 48-all with 24 seconds to play. Allen finished with 10 points, the last two points coming controversially in a furious sequence after Mike Morrison's missed dunk on the other end.
Allen raced down court to try to beat the buzzer with his 30-footer. His long attempt bounced off the backboard and nicked the rim, but the referees whistled George Mason's Ryan Pearson for a foul for apparently hitting Allen's arm and body.
Allen knocked down the first two free throws and missed the third to let time expire.
George Mason (17-13, 12-6) lost its fourth straight game.
