George Mason looks to extend its winning streak to four games when it takes on Towson in the CAA opener for both teams.

The George Mason Patriots and Towson Tigers will meet in Baltimore on Saturday night in the Colonial Athletic Association opener for both teams. The game will begin at 7:30 p.m. Eastern. The Patriots are looking to continue their momentum, while Towson is trying to stop a major slide.

George Mason has won three in a row to move back to 5-2 on the season, including a hard-fought win over Patriot League favorite Bucknell earlier in the week. Ryan Pearson and his teammates are starting to hit their stride after a slow start that included surprising losses to Florida Atlantic and Florida International.

Towson, meanwhile, has yet to pick up a victory all season. The Tigers have played a difficult schedule, though, with losses to Kansas, Michigan, Oregon State and UMass, as well as mid-major power Belmont. The hope is that those difficult games will prepare them as they enter CAA play.
