The day is almost here.
Since the moment George Mason's basketball schedule was released, fans have circled February 14th. On the day where we celebrate love, a rivalry that represents everything but will be renewed.
George Mason takes on VCU in a battle of first-place teams in the CAA at 9:00 PM on Comcast Sportsnet this Tuesday.
The rivalry between VCU and GMU has taken on a life of its own over the past few years. Although Mason has had the edge in the regular season of late, VCU has dominated the postseason, including knocking the Patriots out of the CAA tournament each of the past three years.
Add in VCU matching George Mason with a Final Four run this past March, and you have two strong teams with two ravenous fanbases ready for a fight.
Here are a couple of keys to the game that will help Mason come out on top of this contest for CAA supremacy.
