"George Mason

In Vanessa Blair-Lewis’ first year in Fairfax, George Mason has already doubled their win total from all of last season, posting a 6-6 record. The signature moment of the season has without a doubt been Mason’s 71-66 victory over Florida, a team who later would go on to win ESPN’s Team of the Week honors with a record of 10-3 (including wins over Dayton, GW and Saint Louis). Bethune-Cookman transfer Amaya Scott has been the x-factor for the Patriots thus far, as she ranks 3rd in the A-10 in scoring at 17.0 points per game, which has her tied for 82nd nationally with Aliyah Boston of #1 South Carolina. Complimenting Scott is Jordan Wakefield and Tamia Lawhorne who contribute 13.8 and 10.4 points per game respectively. As a team, George Mason ranks 15th in the nation in free throws made (180) and 21st in the in free throw attempts (247). And while they rank 202nd in team offense (63.4 points per game), it is light years ahead of their final ranking of 326th last season at just a mere 50.5 points. There is measurable progress being made in Fairfax, and a team that went winless in the A-10 a year ago looks poised to contend to be in the top-half of the conference this year.

Best win: Florida, 75-71

Worst loss: Norfolk State, 66-59"

"* Head coach Vanessa Blair-Lewis will remain in COVID-19 protocols and miss Saturday's game against Rhode Island. Associate head coach Chandler McCabe will serve as acting head coach vs. the Rams.

* For four games during the 2017-18 season at Bethune-Cookman, McCabe handled head coaching duties with Blair-Lewis on maternity leave. The Wildcats won three of those four games, including an overtime win at Morgan State and a quarterfinal victory over Maryland-Eastern Shore at the MEAC Tournament.

* Senior Amaya Scott reached the 1,000-point milestone for her career Wednesday night vs. Fordham. The transfer forward scored 771 of those points during her time at Bethune-Cookman and 232 points as a Patriot.

* Scott finished with a career-high 28 points against the Rams. It marked her fourth 20+ game for the Patriots and third in the last five games. She made 12-of-27 field goals, including her first career three-pointer.

* Scott added a team-high eight rebounds vs. the Rams. She's averaging 21.6 points and 7.4 rebounds over the last five games while shooting 45.1 percent from the field."
