George Mason comes off a 64-44 win against the University of Pennsylvania. Northern Iowa, like George Mason, has had some notable games against power five schools.

The Patriots played UNI last season and took them to overtime, but failed to seal the win losing 65-71 on the road.
Player(s) to Look Out For:
#20, Jeremy Morgan:
Jeremy leads the Panthers in shooting from outside the arc with an accuracy of 50%. He averages 13 points a game and shoots 80% from the free throw line. Defensively, Jeremy can be a problem for the Patriots — forcing 14 turnovers this season. Although he is a good in the backcourt, Jeremy gets himself in trouble often with 17 personal fouls this season.
#11, Wes Washpun:
Wes leads his team in points; most of which come from the paint and the free throw line. The Patriots will have to force Wes to pass or shoot from the outside where he shoots 35%. Wes knows how to draw fouls, going to line more than the rest of his team.
#9, Klint Carlson:
Klint has only played four games this season, but has shown to be an effective player coming off the bench. Shooting 90% from the FTL and a decent shooter making 55% of his shots. He isn’t small either; 6-7 225 pounds.
