What to Know
The George Mason Patriots will take on the #6 Kansas Jayhawks at 5 p.m. ET on Saturday at Allen Fieldhouse. These two teams are strolling into their contest after big wins in their previous games.
GMU entered their game last Tuesday as the heavy favorite, and they fully lived up to the hype. They put the hurt on the American Eagles with a sharp 67-44 victory. The Patriots’ success was spearheaded by the efforts of guard Devon Cooper, who shot 5-for-7 from beyond the arc and finished with 18 points, and guard Davonte Gaines, who had nine points in addition to five boards.
Meanwhile, the Nevada Wolf Pack typically have all the answers at home, but on Wednesday Kansas proved too difficult a challenge. Kansas ended the year with a bang, routing Nevada 88-61. It was another big night for Kansas’ guard Christian Braun, who had 22 points.
Their wins bumped GMU to 7-5 and the Jayhawks to 10-1. With both the Patriots and Kansas swaggering in after impressive performances, it will be interesting to see which team steps up to teach the other some humility.
