Mason has won 13 straight and holds a 14-2 mark in the CAA, 1.5 games ahead of Hofstra. The Patriots haven't lost since January 8.
It will also be a sentimental night at the Patriot Center as guards Cam Long and Isaiah Tate will be honored on Senior Night. Long is Mason's leading scorer with 15.1 points per game, while Tate averages 6.4 points per game.
Plenty of comparison has been made between this year's Patriots team and the one that reached the Final Four in 2006. This team, however, has made it clear that they want to forge their own path. A win tonight will put Mason in the right direction.
