Wonder who it is? If it’s one of our big four (Oduro, Cooper, Gaines, Schwartz) you can kiss those next two games goodbye.

I’m going to hypothesize that it isn’t Gaines, because he was on the coach’s show this week.

Of the Big 4, I'm going to assume it's not Oduro because he was at practice this morning (via KE's Instagram story). Whoever it is, hopefully they're feeling alright and it's not serious.

Absolutely. But being young and vaccinated the likelihood of any serious illness is super, super low.

So, some sleuthing and we can guess it’s likely not Gaines or Oduro.

It's too bad it's anybody. But if it has to be, let it be a bencher...or close to it.

We could be alright against ODU. They shoot pretty poorly. 41.32 fg%, 28.69 3pt%. No easy buckets off turnovers and attack the boards and we will be fine.

Navy could be a little tougher. But hopefully we keep it isolated to one player missing time.

Yeah navy I would bet might be a better opponent than odu at the end of the year. Just early ratings looking that way

Enough with the doom and gloom, people. It's not like we are going to get an at-large based on the outcomes of these two games anyway. Hopefully, the infected player continues to be ok and nobody else comes down with it. Hopefully the players who are available come together to win these games.

Completely agree — at large was out the door in South Dakota. All that matters now is prepping to make a run during conference play and working out some of these issues before then. Excited about this stretch going into January. A lot of winnable games.

George Mason coach Kim English tells me he has one player (vaccinated) who tested positive for COVID-19 this week and will miss the team’s next two games. Everyone else is negative as of today.

This is the second team to have a COVID-19 positive that played in Sioux Falls, SD last week. @UW_MBB is down and postponed tonight's game against @ArizonaMBB. The other two teams were @GoJacksMBB and @MasonMBB. No word on either of those teams having any issues. twitter.com/GaryParrishCBS…

Saturday’s game between Nevada and North Texas will not be played because of COVID issues in Nevada’s program, a source told @CBSSports. Nevada coach Steve Alford tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week

Old Dominion strengths (Kenpom):
--59th defensively in blocking shots and creating turnovers
--33rd in getting offensive rebounds (however Mason is 5th defensively in limiting offensive rebounds. Will be quite critical as ODU shoots poorly.
