Villanova delivered a solid performance on Sunday, clinching a convincing 9-2 win against George Mason in Fairfax, VA. 
 
In the sixth inning, Jason Neff's fourth home run of the year gave the Wildcats a significant boost. Neff's contribution extended beyond the home run, as he also racked up three RBI and crossed the plate three times, despite managing just one hit.
