George Mason escapes Trask for 10th straight win

The Patriots struggled a bit in the beginning of this one but once again had a big 2nd half en route to their 10th straight victory. They now have currently tied the longest team winning streak in Coach Larranaga's tenure at George Mason and this is the fastest in school history they have reached 20 wins (beating the 2005-06 squad by 1 week). Andre Cornelius went off in this one as he led all scorers with 25 points that included a 7-for-10 night from three-point land.  Mason could have used some more from the big three in the 1st half as they were taking ill-advised shots and getting beat to some easy boards. UNCW was able to take advantage and end the half only down by one. I know I sound like a broken record when I say this but yes the Patriots again overwhelmed another team in the 2nd half.  They pushed things into their favor off a couple of runs and some hot shooting. Why Cornelius was left alone so much behind the arch I'll never know. His ability to consistently hit shots from the outside makes this team so much more dangerous on offense, if that was possible. Also, Cornelius is the 4th different leading scorer for Mason during this big winning streak.

You have to appreciate Mason being pushed again on the road early and battle back to come away with another decisive win. The early foul trouble didn't seem to slow them down and they kept their composure despite some questionable calls. Sure it wasn't as close as their road game in JMU but they again found away to win with a balanced attack.

I think Brady played Francis "Psycho" in Stripes.

After watching the game, I noticed a few things. Hancock and Long were in foul trouble most of the first half, and Hancock almost all of the second. Whenever Hancock was in, we went on a run. The guy is such a catalyst for this team. He can drive, pass, and shoot. Having him and Cam play together is when we are at our best. And of course either of them passing to a wide open ACorn! As long as our main players stay out of foul trouble in close games, I think we will continue to roll
