Somewhat surprisingly my search to see if any of the Godfather movies were on this weekend came up fruitless. I thought that ish was on every weekend? Also, there's probably hockey on that you could watch but if you want to watch that you already know when/what channel it's on.

Enjoy the weekend, kids. Stay safe out there.

Penn falls to hot-shooting George Mason

PHILADELPHIA -- Jalen Jenkins scored 22 points and grabbed six rebounds to help lead George Mason over Penn 79-60 on Saturday.

Jenkins was 9 of 11 from the field and hit all four of his free throws for the Patriots (8-3), who have won seven straight. Marquise Moore added 17 points and led the team with 16 rebounds -- his eighth double-double this season -- along with 10 assists. Otis Livingston II had 13 points.

Jenkins sank two jumpers and a layup and Jaire Grayer hit a 3-pointer as part of a 13-0 run late in the second period that gave the Patriots a 70-55 lead with 3:18 remaining.

George Mason trailed 44-40 early in the second. Livingston and Karmari Newman sank 3-pointers and Moore drained a layup midway that put the Patriots back on top, 55-48, with 10:39 to play.

Matt Howard scored 15 points with seven rebounds for the Quakers (3-5).

La Salle keeps things close, ultimately falls to Georgetown

MIAMI -- L.J. Peak scored 24 points, Rodney Pryor added 19 and Georgetown closed with a flourish to beat La Salle 93-78 on Saturday in the Hoophall Miami Invitational.

It was tied at 67 with 8:44 left, before the Hoyas finished on a 26-11 run.

Jessie Govan scored 19 points and Jagan Mosely had 14 for the Hoyas (6-4), who won their fourth straight. Georgetown shot 53 percent for the game and 58 percent from 3-point range.

Jordan Price scored 23 points for La Salle (4-4), which got 19 more from B.J. Johnson and 10 from Pookie Powell. The Explorers were outscored 36-22 from the line, getting there 10 fewer times than Georgetown.

It was a homecoming for Hoyas reserve center Trey Mourning, whose father Alonzo Mourning is one of two players -- soon to be three, when Shaquille O'Neal gets added to the list this month -- to have his number retired by the Miami Heat.

The younger Mourning wears No. 33, just like his dad did at Georgetown and for the Heat, and used to work at the arena as a Heat ballboy. He got into the game for the final 23.2 seconds, as the Hoyas ran out the clock.
