George Mason Basketball: On the road again

On the road again

Mason is back on the road again tonight, traveling to New York to take on Antoine Agudio and 4 other guys. Whether it's in Disney or Atlanta, the Patriots have proved that almost anything can happen to their game while on the road, and basically big leads are meaningless until the other team starts to add full-court pressure. They have yet to win a CAA road game and tonight represents a good chance for them to notch one. Hofstra boasts one of the nations top guards in Antoine Agudio, pictured above, but more accurately represented here with fellow Long Islanders. He is fourth in the nation in scoring (25.1 ppg), first in average minutes (39.2) and has more career points at Hofstra than the rest of the team combined. Meanwhile for the Patriots Jordan Carter is expected to return to action tonight according to the Washington Post. The article also points out that the Patriots have made at least seven three-pointers in five of the past six games, but I think the key to this game is as usual going to be Will Thomas. His services were not really needed in the Northeastern game because of great play by the guards but I would not expect to see that same performance tonight, especially on the road. The Patriots need to have a good showing tonight to build confidence for Saturday when they are on the road again in Harrisburg to face JMU. I never thought before the season started that I would have to write that previous sentence but oh well.

I'll be watching closely (7PM, ESPNU)

I hope we practiced getting around full court pressure. Also, I expect Laranaga to be standing this second half (as opposed to his newer sitting stance).

If we lose this game, it's not going to look good. Especially with VCU and Delaware leading our conference.

At last, a road victory! And we snapped a 4 game losing streak at Hofstra. Maybe the tide has turned.
