    This game may not be played. GW has been on Covid break since the 17th. An announcement should be made soon.

    GW is currently 3 - 9 on the season and 2 - 3 in A10 play.

    History: Including tournament play DP is 4 - 7 against the Colonials.

    Wins: Coppin St., Fordham, Duquesne
    Losses: Navy, Hampton, UMBC, Delaware, William & Mary, Charlotte, Duquesne, VCU, Dayton

    Schedule: https://gwsports.com/sports/mens-basketball/schedule
    Roster: https://gwsports.com/sports/mens-basketball/roster
    Stats: https://gwsports.com/sports/mens-basketball/stats/2020/pdf

    GW is led by 6’2” James Bishop (19.8 ppg), 6’7” Jamison Battle (18.4 ppg & 5.9 reb), 6’8” Ricky Lindo (13.0 ppg & 10.0 reb), and 6’9” Mathew Moyer (10.1 ppg & 9.6 reb). 6’9” Chase Parr rounds out the starting lineup but doesn’t always play major minutes. Lindo, who transferred from Maryland, has made a big impact in just 2 games with GW.

    GW averages 72.4 points per game while giving up 73.8. The Colonials shoot 45.6% from the floor and 33.6% from 3. Opponents are shooting 45.2% from the field and 33.8% from 3. The Colonials shoot 70.6% from the free throw line. They have been out rebounded by opponents by 1.4 boards per game. They average 14.9 turnovers per contest.

    The game is on ESPN+ and MASN2.

    My prediction: During the DP era this has been a battle of streaks. GW won the first 5, then lost to us 4 consecutive times, and then swept us last year. GW is big and they have a very nice 1 - 2 punch in Bishop and Battle. Contain them and we have a shot. GMU 71 - GW 70.

    News outlets across the country will report that the James Mason Patriot/Dukes squeaked by the George Madison Colonials at the Fairfax Foggy Bottom Bank Arena in Harrisonburg.

    Discuss.

    GW sucks, and so does anybody who went there.

    GO MASON!

    Game postponed. Have to pivot to UMass who comes to Fairfax on Wednesday.

    Huh? I thought the email said that UMASS was still on as scheduled for Saturday at 2pm? Or did I misread it?

    Herndon must love the postponement, another week to bask in the glory of .500 in the A-10

    Wonder when/if they make it up? Short commute anyway.

    The only spot with enough time between games for Mason to squeeze this one in would be the week of Feb 13-20, but GW plays St. Joes where a makeup game with Mason would go.

    My guess yes. But I wonder know how the rest of the A-1o is going to do it for teams that have missed multiple games? I mean shit, St. Louis hasn't even played a conference game yet and has postponed 7 games so far with none of them having set dates of being rescheduled. I don't see how making up that is possible and what it means for conference tournament seeding and eligibility. So many questions. Do they automatically get a low seed if they don't make up any of those games? If so that would suck for a higher seed that has to play them since Saint Louis is good.

    I think it will come down to winning percentage with a minimum number of games required to be considered eligibility. It’s gonna look a little wonky.

    Dang, Mason needs Bonnie's or St. Louis cancelled - something like that. Not GDub at home. Well - didn't work out last year - so....

    There is about a week between the end of the regular season and the start of the A-10 Tourney?
    Give the league 2 days off then bring all teams needing make up games to the tourney site.
    Play 2 consecutive days of 3 doubleheaders
    then another 2 days off
    then start the Tourney

    They should also get rid of the pillow fight and just accept the top 10 teams, to allow for more makeup games before the tournament.

    The Mason Community Relations account would explode if we ACTUALLY didn’t make the tournament though.

    that would definitely work for most teams that have only missed 1 or 2. Imagine having Saint Louis play 7 games within days before the A10T lol. Their legs would be jello by game 1. A10 will think of something. They’ll work out something to Saint Louis’ favor. They’re supposed to contend for the A10 title. The commissioner will want them in the NCAAT.

    SLU won’t need to win the A-10 tourney because they’re gonna get an at-large. They’d be better off just making up enough of the games to hit the minimum threshold and cancel the rest.

    0-1 now after losing to Dayton. They should shut down again until the A-10 tourney and get matched with Mason in the PIG. It would be the perfect end to our season.
