George Mason Basketball: Home Sweet Home

Home Sweet Home

The Patriots are looking better then ever and even with more confidence then we saw at the Old Spice Classic in November. They are undefeated at home this season and I don't even have to look up the average margin of victory to know it's down right impressive. Last night's massacre of the ODU Monarchs was a game in which Mason again shot the ball extremely well, and apparently handed ODU their worst loss in 12 years. The Patriots made their first 14 out of 25 shots and this time it wasn't the Dre Smith show, it was Folarin Campbell's night. Campbell was able to pour on 25 points, including 5 three-pointers. Vaughan added 17 and Thomas had 14 in a game that saw a lot of the freshman get minutes as well. Big Vlad even had 4 blocks, I couldn't believe my eyes. Now if he could only hit a three-pointer. Jordan Carter was limited to only 11 minutes but he seemed to be able to move around fine out there despite the ankle problem. Dre followed up his record breaking night in Harrisonburg with a 5 point showing and only going 1 for 6 from behind the arch. Oh well, at least we know what the guy is capable of now. Mason is finally starting to show that passion and fire in their game play and the results have been domination on the court. This could not have come at a better time with the VCU game and battle for first place on ESPN2 less than a week away.

Great showing last night.

I hope we go into UNCW on Saturday serious and not overlooking them. We need to pick up a win there so we have full momentum heading into Tuesday's game.

Last night's crowd was impressive, I will be surprised if the place is not close to packed for VCU.

No mention of My Giant Gheroge Muresan being at the game last night?
