The George Mason Patriots also lose on the road by an average of 8.9 points while shooting just 40.7 percent from the field. The Fordham Rams have piled up the losses left and right, but this is more than a winnable game and senior night usually brings the best out of the home team. In a near toss up, I want the points with the Fordham Rams at home.
