Win over Georgia State caps off best regular season ever for George Mason

This has been a season that has well exceeded expectations for George Mason fans and supporters.  Yesterday's win at Georgia State was another game where they didn't dominate the opponent but came out on top again to keep the nation's longest winning streak alive at 15 games.  Finishing the year with 16 CAA wins is a new school record and ties the record for the conference (VCU got 16 in 06-07).  The Patriots ended the game on an 11-4 run to finish the Panthers 65-58.  Cam Long had some late game heroics but the Patriots really showed their balance as a poor shooting night from Ryan Pearson didn't doom the team.  Mike Morrison stepped up, had a momentum swinging alley-oop near the end and finished with 14 points.  Meanwhile Long continued to show why he's All-CAA material by scoring 16 of his 19 points in the second half.  Also when the team needed a spark on offense Vertrail Vaughns was there again and with his 3-for-3 night from behind the arc is continuing to show how he may just be an x-factor this March.

Although the Patriots didn't show their usual dominance on both sides of the court they again found a different way to win.  2nd half hardships do not get them down and their leaders are really picking it up when the team needs them.  The team has that killer instinct and won't back down from any fight.

Now the real season begins.

Good point on JMU they are dangerous with Bowles on the inside and if they get their shots to fall can be a very lethal offense.

Hofstra too, if they get hot. Wasn't a few years ago when W&M got real hot in the CAA tourney? They made a run that no one saw coming.

yeah but Hofstra winning is not that much of a surprise they are a top 4 team. Northeastern and Drexel could knock one of the top four down much like JMU.
