George Mason (13-5, 5-1 CAA) battles Delaware (7-9, 3-3 CAA) on Wednesday as it begins a stretch of three straight games at home.

The George Mason Patriots (13-5, 5-1 CAA) can begin a new winning streak Wednesday when they host the Delaware Blue Hens (7-9, 3-3 CAA) as they start a three-game homestand. Saturday, the Patriots recovered from Thursday's loss to the Drexel Dragons, which ended their streak of 19 consecutive regular-season CAA victories, by defeating the James Madison Dukes, 89-83. Ryan Pearson and Vaughn Gray led five Patriots in double-figure scoring with 19 each.

Delaware has dropped each of its last two games, most recently a 68-55 decision against the Va. Commonwealth Rams. The Blue Hens shot just 31 percent from the field, with guard Devon Saddler being the worst offender: the sophomore missed 16 of his 19 shot attempts.

GMU owns a 19-7 record against Delaware in the head-to-head series, and has won each of the last four meetings. In the last matchup, the Patriots prevailed by a 75-66 final thanks to 19 points from Pearson, as well as a well-rounded outing from Luke Hancock (17 points, seven rebounds, five assists.)

Tipoff for Wednesday's game between George Mason and Delaware is scheduled for 7 Eastern on ESPN3.com.
