UVA will be shorthanded in George Mason's season opener

Can you believe it's only 9 days until Midnight Madness? The season is approaching fast and today we get some injury news regarding the Patriots' season and home opener opponent, Virginia. The Cavaliers' starting point guard, senior Jontel Evans, had surgery yesterday for a stress fracture on his foot and will be sidelined about six weeks. The release also says that sixth man, Malcolm Brogdon, who plays both guard positions could also be unavailable for the November 9th game at the Patriot Center. 

This is certainly an advantage for Mason as they return almost their entire backcourt minus Andre Cornelius, who appeared in 23 games last season. Interesting to think that the Patriots will have the edge at point guard against an ACC team in the beginning of the season.

UVA needs a new strength and training staff; this team was hurt last year all year. Either they are really unlucky or not as well cared for.

Not having Andre in the backcourt shouldn't matter. He went out with a whimper last yr. but an advantage is a stretch because we were a mess most of the year in the bc. Unless Allen shifts it up or Edwards returns to the flashes he showed early last year I think we are just going to be bumpy all year. I don't know that we have an edge so much as its a wash and the game will be about who's front court is better and who turn the ball over less.
