Mason holds off Drexel's late rally to advance in the CAA Tournament

The George Mason men's basketball team managed to keep Damion Lee and the Drexel Dragons (13-18) in check to advance to the semifinals of the Colonial Athletic Association tournament with a 60-54 win at the Richmond Coliseum. 

Junior guard Sherrod Wright led the way for the Patriots (18-13), scoring 18 of his 23 points in the second half and tallying 11-of-12 from the free throw line. Bryon Allen turned in 16 points and six steals and Vertrail Vaughns added 10 points in the winning effort. 

2013 CAA men's basketball tournament preview

The 2013 CAA men’s basketball tournament will have an unfamiliar feel compared to tournaments of years past. The field of seven teams is the least amount of teams in the tournament since 2001.

With Virginia Commonwealth opting to relocated to the Atlantic 10 conference and Old Dominion and Georgia State on the verge of leaving, the CAA tournament may have lost some of its luster from previous years when schools were fighting for at-large NCAA bids.

OPINION: Differences between college basketball and the NBA are game changers

A few weeks back, Richmond (13-9) beat Virginia Commonwealth (17-5). Last week, The University of Virginia (15-5) beat No. 19 NC State (16-5). Can anyone tell me what Richmond and UVA have in common? CORRECT! They were both beaten by Mason this season.

@gmuhoops said it best on Twitter: “Richmond beat VCU, UVA beat NC State. George Mason beat Richmond and UVA, oh college hoops”.
