George Mason Basketball: It Kent be true

It Kent be true

When the schedule for this season was released I looked at this game as a possible first loss. Mostly because it was our first road game and I did think playing teams like ECU and Hampton right before would do us any good. The Patriots started off with some hot shooting but failed to take care of the ball in the 2nd half that eventually led to a 73-55 loss. John Vaughan was the only Patriot who was actually playing like he should. JV led Mason with 17 points while none of the other guards had a strong shooting night. Will Thomas was able to add 12 points but managed only 2 rebounds. Yes that's right, 2. Cam Long and Jordan Carter combined for 3 assists, aren't they supposed to be running the offense? The turnovers are largely based on teams just sitting in the post waiting for Mason players to pass the ball in to Thomas. Sometimes it is ridiculous to watch because everyone in the stadium knows your trying to go to him and yet the lazy pass is made and picked off. This is something that has been happening way too much this year when we get behind. I have never questioned Larranaga's coaching but I just don't understand how he lets his guards telegraph passes in to Thomas. Mason has a break until Dec. 21 due to finals, this probably couldn't have come at a better time.

The zone D is killing us. No consistant outside shooting will make this a rough go. If I were coaching against Mason I would zone all the way until they can prove that they can beat it. Our guards have to step up. Carter needs to bury the 3 when he gets a wide open look.

I saw Carter attempted no shots in that game, does he still think he is a freshman?
