PICK: I’m going to stay with George Mason. The Patriots were overmatched in the Auburn game but looked pretty good against Longwood. George Mason managed 54.7 percent shooting in that one with 36 rebounds and 19 assists. As for American, they were competitive in their opener versus Marist but they allowed the opposition to shoot 51.9 percent from the field and 52.4 from 3-point range. If George Mason has a good day making shots in this one they should be able to cover without too much difficulty.
