Current Records: Navy 6-2; George Mason 4-5
What to Know
The George Mason Patriots have the luxury of staying home another game and will welcome the Navy Midshipmen at 7 p.m. ET Dec. 7 at EagleBank Arena. Navy should still be feeling good after a victory, while the Patriots will be looking to get back in the win column.
GMU entered their contest against the Old Dominion Monarchs this past Saturday without any home losses -- but there's a first time for everything. GMU fell to Old Dominion 60-50. Guard D'Shawn Schwartz wasn't much of a difference maker for GMU; Schwartz finished with only eight points on 3-for-10 shooting in his 37 minutes on the court.
Meanwhile, the Midshipmen had enough points to win and then some against the William & Mary Tribe last week, taking their matchup 75-56.
The Patriots are the favorite in this one, with an expected 4.5-point margin of victory. They have been good against the spread at home while Navy has been good against the spread on the road, so something will have to give.
GMU is now 4-5 while Navy sits at 6-2. Navy is 4-1 after wins this season, and GMU is 0-4 after losses.
