    Bracket

    Players to watch:   AJ Wilson

    The 6'7" junior is the only rim protector on a very small George Mason team. Wilson does his damage in the paint and draws a lot of fouls down low. 

     

    The Skinny: Time got away from me here.  Dave Paulson is a long time coach and Hoiberg was able to speak about his 1-2-2 three quarter press after beating WSU so we should have a good game plan. GM with that press will be trying to slow down Nebraska after made baskets but a small team like the Patriots will want to get into a running game with Nebraska at times.  Always expect the Huskers to shoot from deep but their best bet would be to attack the paint vs a small George Mason squad ill-equipped to stop it.  The Patriots are going to throw a dribble drive at Nebraska but the Huskers can also defend without fouling. A potential boost for  George Mason might be the return of last year's leading scorer Justin Kier from injury. 

     

    If Nebraska can get George Mason to play at their speed, they should win this one. In a half-court game, Nebraska's lack of rebounds and FT makes might hand them another loss.

     

    Prediction: Nebraska 73 - George Mason 67
