• THANK YOU DONORS!!
    I'd like to personally thank everyone that participated in our first donor drive in years! We raised over double the amount that we set as a goal. You guys are awesome! This money helps to fuel much needed upgrades around here - and also includes monthly server costs and software licenses. We are excited for the future and your donations ensure that there will be a place to talk about George Mason basketball (among other things) for seasons to come! - The Management

Rhode Island is currently 9 - 3 on the season and 0 - 0 in A10 play. They are 6-0 at home, 2-2 on the road, and 1-1 at neutral sites.

History: Including tournament play GMU is 1 - 7 against the Rams as a member of the A10.

Wins: Boston, Bryant, Boston College, Georgia St., Harvard, Sacred Heart, Milwaukee, American International
Losses: Tulsa, Florida Gulf Coast, Providence,
Canceled/Postponed: College of Charleston, Brown, Dayton, LaSalle

Schedule: https://gorhody.com/sports/mens-basketball/schedule
Roster: https://gorhody.com/sports/mens-basketball/roster?path=mbball
Stats: https://gorhody.com/documents/2021/12/14//Combined.pdf?id=4459

Rhode Island is led by 6’1” Jeremy Sheppard (11.0 ppg), 6’9” Makhel Mitchell (10.3 ppg & 5.2 reb), 6’10” Makhi Mitchell (10.5 ppg & 6.9 reb), and 6’2” Ishmael Leggett (9.2 ppg). 6’3” Ishmael El-Amin is the 5th starter who contributes 8.3 ppg. 6’7” Antwan Walker, 6’6” Malik Martin, 6’3” Jalen Carey, and 6’1” Sebastian Thomas play double figure minutes off the bench.

Rhode Island averages 71.1 points per game while giving up 61.8. The Rams shoot 48.9% from the floor and 36.2% from 3. Opponents are shooting 36.0% from the field and 31.0% from 3. The Rams shoot 71.0% from the free throw line. They have out rebounded opponents to the tune of 4.8 boards per game.

The game is on ESPN+.

My prediction: Our history against the Rams is poor to say the least with only one win while a member of the A10. Unfortunately, that trend continues with this game. The Mitchell twins, originally at Maryland, will provide a challenge in the post. RI 75 - GMU 69.

Discuss.

Rhode Island is scheduled to host American International on Sunday.

Trivia question: Name the former George Mason head coach who started his college head coaching experience at American International?

Sorry to stick this here - didn't know where to put it. St. Joe's will require fans in attendance to be vaccinated beginning Jan. 17th. Proof of vax or negative test required until then.
