Patriots not sharp, but have enough to knock off Saint Francis

Please let Steven Goff’s piece on the win over SFPA be a simple memoriam that allows us to put this behind us and buried for good. Man, what a bad, ugly game that was from all angles.

The George Mason Patriots strained to find positive elements from a 58-46 victory over Saint Francis (Pa.) on Tuesday night, their fourth consecutive triumph to begin the season.

But there was this:

“I am glad we played defense,” relieved Coach Paul Hewitt said after a game marred by 46 fouls, 57 free throws, poor shooting from all distances, several air balls and two video reviews.

The Patriots shot 29 percent in the first half and 38 percent overall. Only two players made at least half of their attempts. They committed 17 turnovers and failed to put away an inferior opponent until the last nine minutes.
