George Mason vs Northeastern Photo Gallery

My boss had an extra ticket to last night's George Mason basketball game so I went to see the Patriots take on Northeastern. Since 2001 I have been to about a dozen George Mason home games at the Patriot Center and last night was the first time I've seen them lose at that venue. Earlier this season, I covered the BB&T Classic and George Mason lost to Maryland at the Verizon Center.

The university is close by our house, a quick half hour drive most nights and tickets for Ben and I to go are cheaper than a movie matinee. We have fun at Patriot Center, the team is competitive and it's a nice outing. Hopefully the Patriots will bounce back from this 84-74 loss.
