NCAA Tournament

[VIDEO] PREVIEW: 2013 NCAA Men's Soccer Tournament -- George Mason vs. William and Mary

After defeating Virginia Commonwealth University in a dramatic 3-2 overtime win to advance to the final game of the Atlantic 10 Championship, and defeating St. Louis for the title, Mason men’s soccer team will now face another former conference rival – the College of William and Mary – in the opening round of the 2013 NCAA Soccer Championship.

Non-conference schedule to play much higher role in weakened CAA

April 1, 2006. The clock struck midnight on the George Mason Patriots’ prolific season. 

The end of a fairytale run. The end of a “Cinderella Story.”

In 2006, George Mason University became the first Colonial Athletic Association team to reach the Final Four. And in 2013, the men’s basketball team is determined to pull off the ultimate fairy-tale ending – making it back to the NCAA tournament in a depleted CAA conference.

The ‘Madness’ ends as midmajors fall short of Final Four

In what has been one of the wackiest and most unpredictable NCAA Tournaments in history, college basketball has been restored to normalcy, as four perennial powerhouses remain standing.

Kentucky, Louisville, Kansas and Ohio State.

The madness all started with the little-known No. 15 seed Norfolk State and their shocking win over the No. 2 seed Missouri Tigers, a team coming off a strong performance in the Big 12 Championship, and that many predicted to reach the Final Four.

This was the first win by a No. 15 seed over a No. 2 seed in the tournament in 11 years.

Opinion: Does that say VCU vs. Butler?

Opinion: What’s the big deal about the Big East?

Villanova was not only representative from the Big East to take a tumble thus far during March Madness. Only two of the 11 squads reached the Sweet Sixteen. (John Powell)
