Mason takes down Towson

The Patriots improved to 4-0 in CAA play after beating Towson on the road last night and are victorious in six of their last seven games. Mason's offense was in rhythmn right from the start in this one. Dre Smith quickly knocked down two three-pointers in the opening minutes and they never really were challenged after that. Darryl Monroe dominated down low picking up his fourth double-double of the year with 16 points and 10 rebounds (8 offensive). Mason's defense again was the real difference maker late in the game as they held another team under 40% FG shooting. Michael Morrison had another authoritative shot block and Isaiah Tate somehow managed two points, three assists, and a steal in five minutes off the bench. The team would really profit off having another regular contributor off the bench outside of Cornelius and Pearson. After playing three games in five days the Patriots don't look tired and in fact they seem to be playing their best basketball yet this year. Saturdays showdown with Old Dominion should be interesting after watching the Monarchs fall to James Madision last night. ODU is one of the few CAA teams that seem to play well at the Patriot Center.


The Washington Post is reporting that Vlad Moldoveanu might be going to American University:
"Patriots Notes: Vlad Moldoveanu, a 6-foot-10 sophomore forward from Romania who left the program two weeks ago, might end up at American University"

Looking at the box score it seems like Birdsong has been struggling recently. He isn't contributing scoring wise or rebounding wise.

And haven't we dominated ODU at Patriot Center the last few years? I remember we lost on a buzzer beater a few years back but other than that I seem to remember us always blowing them out.
