George Mason vs Delaware Pictures

Took my family to the Patriot Center again tonight to see George Mason take on Delaware as my boss gave me his tickets. Again, we had a fantastic time and Benjamin is starting to really get into following basketball. A brief recap and some pictures below. For a slideshow, just click on a picture. Enjoy!

George Mason vs Delaware
Ryan Pearson scored 24 points and Mike Morrison scored 17 as George Mason hammered Delaware 89-63.

Pearson was solid for the Patriots (14-5, 6-1 CAA). He had 10 rebounds, 4 steals and 2 blocked shots. The Patriots Byron Allen also contributed to the party with 12 points.

Delaware got off to a slow start, scrapped back but faced a 15 point deficit at the half. Delaware cut the lead to nine early in the second half but George Mason went on a 15-3 run, never panicked and took care of business for the victory.

Devon Sadler led the Blue Hens (7-10, 3-4) with 21 points and Josh Brinkley scored 14 before he fouled out.

George Mason vs Georgia State Pictures

Georgia State came into Patriot Center with an eleven game winning streak. George Mason entered the game having won four straight. Something had to give. George Mason came through in the clutch with a 61-58 victory.

We got a family group together and bought tickets at the door. While I was a little farther away from my usual courtside spot at Comcast Center at the University of Maryland, I thought these shots came out ok from the upper part of Section 110 of the Patriot Center.

A couple things great about George Mason basketball: a. They have an impressive home record over the past couple years and b. I can take Benjamin (age six) and the two of us can get in for less than the cost of a matinee movie. All of us in our group had a great time tonight and will be back. Enjoy the shots and for a photo album, just click on one of the pictures.
