First place in the super-competitive Colonial Athletic Association is on the line when two traditional powers square off in Fairfax, Va. Old Dominion was supposed to have a down year after heavy graduation losses, but they've ripped through the CAA with a 10-2 record. George Mason, meanwhile, has overcome suspensions, transfers and a late coaching change to move to 10-2 in the conference as well coming into Saturday's showdown.
The Patriots currently hold the tiebreaker after topping the Monarchs, 63-54, on January 5. Had the Patriots taken care of business this week, this game wouldn't be for first place in the conference. Instead, the Patriots suffered a disappointing mid-week loss to Delaware, setting up the showdown.
Here is more information about the game.
Game Date/Time: Saturday, February 4, 5 p.m. ET
Location: Patriot Center, Fairfax, Va.
