 LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) -John Vaughan scored 21 points and Folarin Campbell and Will Thomas each added 18 to lead George Mason to an 87-77 upset of No. 18 Kansas State in the opening round of the Old Spice Classic on Thursday night.
The Patriots (4-0), who made a surprising run to the Final Four two seasons ago, have won four straight to start a season for the first time in school history. They advanced to Friday's second round against No. 20 Villanova, a 76-68 winner over Central Florida.
Michael Beasley had at least 30 points for the third time in four games for Kansas State (3-1). But the 6-foot-10 freshman rode the bench for long stretches because of foul trouble and the Wildcats were unable to make up for his absence.
Beasley scored 22 after halftime to finish with 30 points and 10 rebounds. But he got little help from his teammates until it was too late.
No. 20 Villanova 76, Central Florida 68

O'Donnell led UCF with 24 points, 15 of them in the second half when he made four of his six 3-pointers.
No. 19 Southern Illinois 63, Chattanooga 41
