George Mason Vs. Virginia: Patriots Lose By Twenty In Charlottesville

The George Mason Patriots lost their third game of the season on Tuesday night, falling by a 68-48 margin against the Virginia Cavaliers. UVA is expected to be much improved this season, and they now stand at 8-1 and are undefeated at John Paul Jones Arena.

Tony Bennett's teams tend to slow the game down, and rarely do opponents light it up against Bennett-coached teams. But the Patriots especially struggled against UVA, scoring only 48 points and failing to have a single player reach double digits for the first time this season. The twenty point loss is also their worst of the year. GMU turned it over twenty times and hit only two threes on the evening. Ryan Pearson was just four of ten on the evening, as he failed to hit double digits for the first time this year.

Sharpshooter Sammy Zeglinski led the Cavaliers, finishing with 18 points buoyed by his four three pointers. Mason continues its tour around the state of Virginia on Saturday, when they head to Radford.

George Mason Vs. Virginia Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The George Mason Patriots (6-2) visit the Virginia Cavaliers (7-1) on Tuesday night in arguably the toughest matchup of their young season so far. Though they've won their last four games, the Patriots are 0-1 on the road and 2-1 away from Patriot Center overall, making Tuesday's visit to John Paul Jones Arena particularly challenging.

George Mason knocked off the Towson Tigers, 65-53, on Saturday to capture its fourth straight win. Ryan Pearson and Mike Morrison scored 14 points apiece to pace the Patriots, each of whose starters finished in doule figures. Tigers forward Marcus Damas scored 25 points, but George Mason limited his teammates to 28 points on 9-of-34 shooting in keeping Towson winless on the season.

In its most recent outing, Virginia drubbed the Longwood Lancers, 86-53, behind a near-perfect performance from Mike Scott. The senior forward scored 20 points on 6-of-6 shooting from the field and 7-of-8 shooting from the foul line; he also contributed nine rebounds, four assists, and just two turnovers in 24 minutes. Sammy Zeglinski added 14 points and four three-pointers to help Virginia improve to 7-1. The Cavaliers' lone loss this season came against the TCU Horned Frogs by a 57-55 final.
