5 Takeaways from George Mason Basketball's Loss to No. 19 Saint Louis
Scott Kane/Associated Press

The George Mason Patriots squandered another late-game advantage in an 87-81 loss to the No. 19 St. Louis Billikens on Saturday.

The Patriots, the newest member of the Atlantic 10 Conference in men's basketball, lost their eighth consecutive game and remained winless in conference play (0-7) this season. Just as the story has gone all season long, the Patriots led by seven on three separate occasions but were unable to fend off the Billikens late in the game.

Despite trailing at the half, the Patriots took the lead immediately out of the break and held the advantage for the entirety of the second half until the Billikens' Rob Loe tied the game at 68 with 44 seconds left. George Mason could not win the game in regulation, after two shot attempts rimmed out, and Saint Louis ran away with the victory in overtime.

After another heartbreaking loss for the Patriots, the following is a list of five keys Patriots fans can take away from their latest defeat.
