From that point on, the Saints played the Patriots nearly even, as Mason outscored Marymount 53-44 over the final 30 minutes.
Despite shooting well from the floor, Mason did not convert from behind the arc, making just 4 of 15 3-pointers. The Patriots were 20 of 27 from the free throw line. Marymount, meanwhile, was 7 of 20 from long range and 7 of 15 from the charity stripe. Corey Diamond led the Saints with 15. He was the lone Marymount player in double figures.
