George Mason Preview

Everyone's favorite story two years ago is a 12 seed after finishing the year 23-10 with an RPI ranking of 61.

Joe Lunardi on Notre Dame
George Mason
Washington State

Offensive Efficiency- 70
Defensive Efficiency- 123
Good Wins- vs. Cleveland State, Dayton, Kansas State, Virginia Commonwealth
Bad Losses- vs. East Carolina, Georgia State

Dre Smith- 8.6 PPG, 1.4 APG, 38% 3PA
John Vaughan- 12.6 PPG, 4.0 RPG, 33% 3PA
Folarin Campbell- 15.9 PPG, 3.3 APG, 37% 3PA
Louis Birdsong- 6.2 PPG, 3.9 RPG
Will Thomas- 15.8 PPG, 10.5 RPG

Cam Long- 4.1 PPG, 2.3 RPG, 41% 3PA, 17.8 MPG
Jordan Carter- 2.8 PPG, 1.9 RPG, 33% 3PA, 16.6 MPG
Vlad Moldoveanu- 2.3 PPG, 2.1 RPG, 15% 3PA, 11.6 MPG

More depth than the 7 man rotation in 2006. Campbell and Thomas are the only holdovers who played serious minutes on that team (both were starters then as well).

Both Carter and Moldoveanu have been banged up and may only see limited time.
