Sophomore guard Jen Derevjanik scored 13 of her 22 points in the second half as No. 5 George Mason pulled away for a 65-56 victory over No. 4 James Madison in quarterfinal round action at the ALLTEL Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Women’s Basketball Championship at ODU Fieldhouse last night.

Derevjanik, a second-team All-CAA selection, was 9-for-15 from the field to pace the George Mason attack. Junior forward Shelbylynn McBride also chipped in with 12 points, including 8-of-10 shooting at the free throw line.

The Patriots, winners of three straight and six of their last seven, will face No. 1 seed Old Dominion tonight at 7:30 p.m.
