    From what I can tell, the game can be viewed here: https://watchstadium.com/live/george-washington-at-george-mason/

    You can check your local listings because I think this TV listing is outdated: https://23455-presscdn-pagely.netdn...uploads/2017/12/Sinclair-Markets-11.30.17.pdf

    GW comes in with a 10-14 record after beating LaSalle in DC last night by a score of 80-69. Saturday's game is a rematch of the January 17th game in which GW won by a score of 80-68. GW is 0-7 in true road games this season.

    The schedule is here: http://www.gwsports.com/sports/m-baskbl/sched/gewa-m-baskbl-sched.html

    Last season's box score from Fairfax is here: http://gomason.com/boxscore.aspx?id=6830&path=mbball

    The stats are here: http://www.gwsports.com/sports/m-baskbl/stats/2017-2018/teamcume.html

    Watanabe is averaging 15.4 PPG/6.2 RPG (got 12 points and 8 rebounds in last season's game), Jair Bolden is averaging 11.7 PPG, and Patrick Steeves is averaging 10.6 PPG/5.3 RPG (got 11 points and 5 rebounds off the beach in last season's game).

    Bonus question, it seems that someone that doesn't light up the stat sheet goes off on us in home games. Who will that player be?

    FANTASY: Paulsen decides to take Watanabe out of the game by having Otis stand at the mid court line on offense essentially making it 4 on 4 when we have the ball. Greene goes off from deep and scores 45 points on 15 for 15 from 3. Mason leads 75 - 74 with 1 second left. Otis reaches out and touches Watanabe. Watanabe flops like a soft European soccer player. Refs look at the tape and hit Otis with a Flagrant 2. Watanabe nails both free throws and GW wins 76 - 75.

    REALITY: We match up terribly with them. GW owns us. In prison they would trade us for a pack of cigarettes after making us pick up the soap. Watanabe will shut down Otis again. Jaire will disappear again leaving it up to the freshmen. We get down big early and disappoint a Homecoming crowd of 5,000. GW by 15. We take one step closer to the PIG.

    Do I watch this game live and drink 20 beers? Or do I totally forget about the game, drink 20 beers anyway, and wake up hungover at 4 am Sunday and then check the score on my phone?

    Both options end in a "disappointment puke" -- but which one is less painful?

    I would go with the live option. Perhaps your projectile vomiting will hit one of our older alums who sit on their hands.

    Avoiding the PIG is my only goal for this year. If we do that, at a minimum, we would finish where we were projected or better.

    GW too big to handle. Otis won't be able to get anything going.

    I am going to Tanya Harding Yuta. He won't be shutting Otis down for a 6th straight game

    Otis actually scored 17 last year at home against GW. I'm not sure what we did or they did differently in that game.

    What I'd really like to see is a lot of screens and when Steeves flashes to stop Otis from turning the corner, we roll Calixte to the basket and Otis actually makes the pass.

    I'm not sure what we can do defensively to stop Yuta, Ziegler, and Steeves from killing us when they're on the floor together.

    Mason can't figure out their 3 point defense and GW shoots 40% from deep.

    The Colonials suck, but own the Patriot in this so-called "rivalry".

    I'm just interested to see if Paulsen will come up with some kind of game plan to counteract what GW will try to do to us on defense. If we do the exact same things we did in our last matchup with GW and don't make any adjustments I'll be very disappointed.

    BTW - very good chance we won't be using our two patriot club passes for the pre-game reception, since we have a lot of friends in town and will be at the indoor tailgate till 3:30pm. If you see me at the indoor tailgate, feel free to ask for my passes if you want to check out the patriot club gold room.

    Just add about 20 pounds to each of the humans in my avatar photo and you should be able to recognize me and my kid.

    Lots of references to Jollay's small penis - must be something to it then...

    I predict that who ever wins will have 11 wins so far in the season.

    I'm going to say neither?

    I'm going to guess 84-68 GW. Wash-rinse-repeat of last year and this.
