George Mason's Bracketbuster opponent is Lamar

The school has announced that they will be playing Lamar on February 18 at 4 p.m. for ESPN's annual Bracketbusters weekend. The game will be televised shown on ESPN3.com.  Lamar is out of the Southland conference (RPI #116) and is 13-8 overall.  Not the sexy pick but we knew Mason probably wasn't going to get a premiere matchup with their resume. 

The two teams do have history as George Mason beat Lamar 65-63 in the the Patriot's first Division I post-season appearance during the first round of the 1986 NIT.

In other news Ryan Pearson is a CAA Co-Player of the Week.

Concerning Holloway and Marko, does anyone know what these guys numbers are from beyond the arc and from the free throw line? Hype from recruiters, coaches and guys that have seen them play once or twice is just too common. The numbers don't lie. I saw Patrick shoot 1 for 8, and 1for 6 last year from behind the arc. I know he shoots better than this. I loved that he kept shooting the ball. I don't doubt he can shoot, but what are his numbers? The same with Marco, the numbers tell the entire story and the rest is just hype.

Holloway's numbers: this season he's made  59 3-pointers, from FT he is 40-51 (78.4%)

Marko's high school numbers are hard to find but he shot over 33% in Euro leagues from 3-pt. http://www.eurobasket.com/player.asp?Cntry=SRB&PlayerID=177788

This site has his high school stats but they aren't complete. http://www.wix.com/in3164/sphoops#!stats

If we neeeded any extra motavation for Delaware or for that matter anyone the bracket buster match up should provide it. No TV and like you said not sexy. I listened to Coach on that CAAsports.com Monday interview and he knows how important each game is despite the fact people with questions only wanted to talk about ODU. One game at a time. Seek and destroy. No let up. We are going to have to earn respect not just in our league and with some of the people on this site but with the college basketball world.

Drexel has it the easiest of all of what I'd seeing as the top four CAA teams (Us, Drexel, ODU and VCU) Of those teams, all but Drexel play some combination of each other 3 times, while Drexel only has to play ODU once. I'm not saying that Deleware, Ga. St. or N.Eastern couldn't upset the top four in a game or two, but why the cupcake schedule for Drexel?

The 4th, 14th and 24th will tell us all what kind of team this is.

Since this is last home game, this will be senior night, right?

Yes that is correct. Kind of a sad way to go out, especially if they don't make the NCAA's this year.

NOT impressed with the Lamar draw, particularly after looking at the draws by others in the CAA, and that they get televised.  And ODU gets Missouri State?
Anyway, beyond that, this is the time to root for our conference rivals.  If you look at the ESPN bubble watch, the CAA is mentioned as perhaps in the future putting a team on the watch.  If we can whip up in bracketbusters, all our RPIs will increase, and still provide hope for an at large.  Realistically, we probably have to run the table from here and get to the finals in Richmond, but the possibility is still there.
