What to Know

The George Mason Patriots won both of their matches against the George Washington Colonials last season (63-58 and 73-59) and are aiming for the same result Monday. GMU and George Washington will face off in an Atlantic 10 battle at 2 p.m. ET at Charles E. Smith Center.

The Patriots came up short against the Kansas Jayhawks three weeks ago, falling 76-67. The losing side was boosted by guard Davonte Gaines, who dropped a double-double on 15 points and 12 rebounds.

Meanwhile, George Washington was expected to have a tough go of it last Tuesday, and, well, they did. They have to be aching after a bruising 84-57 defeat to the VCU Rams. Guard Brayon Freeman had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with ten points on 3-for-13 shooting in his 25 minutes on the court.

GMU is the favorite in this one, with an expected 7-point margin of victory. They are currently four-for-four against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. We'll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
