Tonight hurt, but this Davidson team is not that good. Again, we are a different team in Fairfax. 9 point win coming Saturday. With the early tip will we get pancakes and mimosas in the gold room?

We better blow these Aholes away. Want at least a 10 point win.

Would like to see more of Saquan and Justyn take away Cooper's minutes. Would also like to see Malik start... he's playing very well.

They shot terribly against Richmond. I am a bit concerned thay are bound to heat up against Mason, just hope our offense is running on all cylinders and can hit some free throws.

We’re gonna find out a lot about our guys on Saturday. They’ve been resilient — if they’re able to get past the SLU debacle we should have enough to win fairly comfortably. This is the worst Davidson team in a long time.

This is the worst shooting Davidson team of the kenpom era. Nothing like Bobby's old teams. Of course that means they'll go 15-25 from deep against us.

As long as we don't zone and leave their guys wide open..not that any other Mason team has ever done that.

Unfortunately, I feel like there is nothing left to find out about our guys. The pattern is pretty consistent. They are who they are, and pretty uninspiring at that. Not bad, but not very good. Don't have the killer instinct and don't play with a lot of fire in their bellies. This team will be easily forgettable in the annals of Mason basketball history.
