Mason Is One Win From the Dance

Just like last season, Mason headed into the CAA Tourney knowing they had to earn their bid by winning the whole damn thing. And just like last season, they’ve made it to the CAA championship game. But unlike last year, all that stands between Mason and the Dance is William & Mary, who pulled off the major upset over VCU in the semis today.

The two will fight for an automatic bid tomorrow night at 7PM. Mason and W&M only played once this season, and the Patriots won 60-54 in Fairfax.

Granted, this is all bad news for Maryland (and any bubble teams) seeing as VCU is now likely to steal an at-large, giving the CAA two teams in the field. But two more ACC wins for the Terps, and it won’t matter anyway.

UPDATE: Nevermind that bit about Maryland being a bubble team.

    While I am pulling for Mason, it would be nice to see the boys from Gheorge: The Blog go apeshit.

    The dunk was sick. Birdsong rose up and hammered it down in Adako’s grill. GTB, where you there at the championship?
