Mason looks to complete home dominance

As the Patriots finish up their regular season tonight hosting Towson, they are attempting to complete the first unbeaten season at the Patriot Center. It is not the first time Mason has been undefeated at home during a season but it would be the first time at the Patriot Center. This game also marks the last senior night of any player that was on the 2006 Final Four squad. Chris Fleming and John Vaughan sure have a lot of memories and despite neither of them playing in the 2006 NCAA tournament their leadership from being on that squad will certainly be missed. Towson would like nothing else than to come into Fairfax and ruin this for Mason. Although the Patriots have secured a first round bye in the conference tourney they are looking for some stability and momentum, while still in the running for the #2 seed. Consistency has been a problem for Mason this year and so has winning outside of the Patriot Center. One thing the Patriots have been consistent on is poor free-throw shooting, which is something to keep an eye on in this one. They need to right the ship in this area or they will not have much success next week in Richmond.

Fleming played in all 5 NCAA tourney games the Final Four year, although only one min per game.

Thanks for your web-site. It's great, view it often !!!!

The undefeated season at home is impressive.

It would be nice to have some decent foul shooting but we have never seemed to have had that. I think the real key for us will be hitting from three and guarding the three.

Even tonight our three point defense left something to be desired.

I like our draw, we avoid VCU until the final, and if we can get past Saturday I like us a lot against Northeastern.

I didn't have much confidence going into last years conference tournament and we saw how that turned out.

Let's see what happens. GO MASON!
