Otis Livingston II is averaging 12.5 points and three assists while Marko Gujanicic is averaging 10.5 points and eight rebounds. Marquise Moore is the third double-digit scorer and Shevon Thompson is grabbing 11 rebounds. The George Mason Patriots are shooting just 18.6 percent from downtown and 48.7 percent from the free throw line. It’s going to be tough for the Pats to win games when they’re shooting that poorly from everywhere on the court. George Mason has now lost 12 of its last 14 games.
The Rebels are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a losing S.U. record and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Patriots are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games.
George Mason has lost to lesser teams than Ole Miss. Hard to think the Patriots can hang in this game against far better talent. Look for Moody and Saiz to have another game game and for the Rebels to win by double digits.
