A couple more George Mason basketball scheduling tidbits slipped out this week as schools continue to announce their slates for the upcoming season.

Bucknell’s schedule is posted and includes a Nov. 30 trip to Fairfax. And Manhattan is due to pay a visit to the Patriot Center on Dec. 23.


Since Mason can play up to 31 games this season (27 plus a four-game exempt event) and the CAA schedules 18 games, the Patriots have 13 nonconference dates available. Eleven of those are now accounted for, and the Bracket Buster event in February typically serves as another. So that leaves one other spot.

Nov. 14: vs. Florida International in Blacksburg, Va. (NIT Season Tip-Off)
Nov. 15: vs. Virginia Tech/Monmouth in Blacksburg, Va. (NIT Season Tip-Off)
Nov. 19: at Florida Atlantic
Nov. 21-22 OR Nov. 23 & 25: Two games in NIT Season Tip-Off
