    "MASON ALL TIME VS. TOP-10 TEAMS
    Mason is 2-10 all time against AP Top-10 teams. Both victories came during the 2006 run to the Final Four, when Mason dispatched of No. 10 North Carolina in the Round of 32, then upset No. 2 UConn in the Elite Eight. The Patriots have only faced a top-10 team once in the Dave Paulsen era, when the Green & Gold fell to No. 6 Virginia in the championship game of the 2015 Charleston Classic.

    What the hell is a "Testudo"?? It sounds like a scrotal cyst that you get from not changing your underwear enough. It's one of those maladies that men don't really want to talk about:

    Friend – "Hey, man, why so glum?"

    Man: – "I can't have sex for two months."

    Friend – "Aw, dude. Why?"

    Man – "I... I got a Testudo."

    Friend – "Mmmph... how'd it happen?"

    Man – "I don't want to talk about it..."

    I think the real test for us tonight will be how we handle their pressure. If we struggle and play passively like we did against Loyola's press and traps, we could lose this game by 25. Hartwell, Greene and Johnson need to attack their pressure without turning it over, and we need all hands on deck to crash the boards. If we defend the 3, limit turnovers, win the rebounding battle and shoot 50% from behind the arc, I like our chances.

    Nice to know the team is already in College Park and not going to get stuck in beltway traffic like they did that one year. Arriving to the building at 6:45pm (I can't remember what the exact time was) for a 7pm tip is not ideal

    It’s a Friday game, so if the players are smart (like me) they don’t have any classes on Friday anyway and thus won’t miss any class time traveling.
