• 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

Welcome Malik Henry

I think every guard on our Final 4 team learned how to throw an alley-oop to Gabe Norwood. Passing it is the relatively easy part. The harder part is drawing up the play that involves a post player setting a high screen on the guy covering the guy who dunks it. In the Gabe scenario, it was often Will Thomas who would step up to the FT line to create the pick, thereby opening up backdoor cut to the basket.

Gabe was coming from the 3 spot, but I feel like having Miller and AJ on the floor at the same time would allow you to interchange and have one screen for the other...or screen off of Oduro...and the really nice thing about that is all three of them can make that mid-range shot if the screen doesn't work and they track the cutter.

Would be nice if Malik could convince his buddy Duncan Powell to join him at Mason.

Duncan is a 4 star from Texas that just decommited from Arkansas. Holds a bunch of offers, one from SLU. Class of 21’

I agree, but I won't look forward to it until I see DP run a play or motion (besides rolling after a handoff) designed to get a 4/5 the ball near the basket.

Looking at some of the recent photos English has posted of the team practices Henry looks to already be adding a bit of weight and getting stronger. A full off-season of workouts might just do him wonders.

If we're looking at the same pic, he also looks taller than Oduro. But I think Oduro is slouching. Don't care, marking Henry down as 6'10" now! /s

6'8" and 6'9" perhaps. Long arms on Henry too. And then add in Jones, plus 6'7" SF and 6'6" guards and can go w/a pretty big lineup if needed.
Gaines being able to guard the 2 is going to wind up being a valuable asset. It will allow KE to slide Schwartz down to the 3 and find minutes for Henry or Jones at the 4. No more having to play small ball as our standard lineup.
