Tonight it's George Mason vs. Hofstra live from the Mack, being televised nationally on ESPNU. Mason looks to remain in a first place tie in the CAA while Hofstra tries to take its first step back to .500 with a win tonight. The Patriots defeated the Pride earlier this month 67-63. As per usual, I will be blogging and tweeting with live updates.
The Iona Lady Gaels won their fifth game in a row on Monday, downing St. Peter's 61-45 at the Hynes Center in New Rochelle. Thazina Cook, who was named MAAC player of the week, scored 24 points on 9 of 11 shooting. With the win, the Lady Gaels are now over .500 on the season at 9-8 and are now in sole possession of second place in the MAAC with a 5-1 conference record. The win steak coincides with Cook's return to the lineup. Over the current five game win streak, the preseason All First Team MAAC player has shot 31 of 59 from the field and averaged over 18 points per game. The Lady Gaels play three of their next four games at home before a critical three game road trip that starts with first place Marist.
And remember, after the 7pm Mason-Hofstra game on ESPNU, at 9pm, it's nationally ranked Northern Iowa traveling to Wichita State. Should be a dandy.
