Greetings from courtside at Patriot Center, where George Mason can go a long way to locking up a bye  in the CAA tournament with a victory tonight against Drexel.

The Patriots and Dragons are tied for third in the 12-team league, with the top four teams assured a pass into the quarterfinals. Mason won the first meeting back in December, so this would give Jim Larranaga’s team a one-game lead on Drexel with two to play.
