The Patriots are currently working their way through certainly the most grueling part of their CAA schedule, which has Mason, as well as every other CAA team, playing four games in only eight days.
So far during this "four in eight" stretch, the Patriots have gone 3-0, but haven't exactly looked great doing it, thanks to their offensive woes of late. Mason had to use late runs to put away Towson and UNCW, and actually had to come from behind and use some Sherrod Wright heroics to finish off Hofstra.
However, Saturday is a new day and at 2:00 PM on Comcast SportsNet, the Patriots return home to take on an old school rival—the James Madison Dukes.
These two teams met only two weeks ago at JMU, and Mason came away with an 89-83 victory in an ugly, hard fought game.
With Mason's less than convincing victories of late, Patriot fans will be hoping that the team can once again return to the high scoring, dominating team that they can be. Here are five things that Mason fans will be looking for against JMU on Saturday.
