A10 Preview: George Mason
WFUV Sports will be previewing all the teams in the Atlantic 10 in anticipation of the start of Fordham's Basketball season. Here's a look at the George Mason Patriots....
George Mason is the newest member of the Atlantic 10, and they return all five starters from last season. The Patriots mean business in transferring from the CAA. They reached the finals of the College Basketball Invitational last season, and will look to finish in the top five of the conference for sure. Senior Sherrod Wright is an explosive scorer who had six games with 20 or more points in the final nine games of the season, and started every game last year which was a school record. In addition, the Patriots boast a very hostile home crowd at the Patriot Center. They've lost just eight games there over the past two seasons.
