Mason is led by three players averaging double figures. John Vaughan is scoring 11.5 points, Darryl Monroe is averaging 10.6 points and 9.5 rebounds and Cam Long has 10.4 points, respectively.

Radford has two straight and six of seven contests and are yet to win away from home. Mason is 3-0 at the Patriot Center and have won four of their last five, only losing in Lynchburg to Liberty by three.

Tipoff is set for 7 PM at the Patriot Center and will be televised on MASN.
