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.
