Ryan Pearson and Andre Cornelius are out for tonight's game at GW

Thanks for everyone who sent the tips in on this one. It seems Ryan Pearson and Andre Cornelius are both suspended for tonight's game at George Washington. This may be the reason why Pearson was on the bench most of the second half at Tulane as well. While most of you read the same stuff I did on certain social media sites, it appears the two were suspended by Coach Larranaga for stealing a pillow while staying at a hotel in New Orleans this past weekend, there could be more to story but that's all I know at this point. You can notice in today's game notes (PDF) that they are not listed as probable starters, Luke Hancock and Sherrod Wright are penciled in as of now in their place. Very disheartening to see this kind of thing happen, but Mason fans know Larranaga runs a tight ship and no deed like this goes unpunished. Although this basically a non-conference game of little importance to Mason, you can't deny the fact that as a fan you want to see this team beat our neighbors in DC. I'm curious to see what Wright does in his extra minutes tonight as he will have a lot more opportunities to shoot the ball. Also with Pearson out Kevin Foster will see a lot of front court action and the team will need him playing aggressive alongside Morrison. Morrison staying out of foul trouble is another key tonight.

Good for Coach for suspending them. I hope this is just a one time mistake for these guys. I'd hate to see us upgrading in overall talent, while downgrading in character.

Let's Go Mason!

They'll be okay. Expect performances like this during this season. We might go .500 this year, but this is clearly a squad poised for greatness in the future.

Not to mention an awesome collection of hotel linens.
