No. 6 Maryland men’s basketball will hope to continue its nonconference winning ways when it hosts the George Mason Patriots Friday night.
Coming off a commanding 74-55 win versus Fairfield on Nov. 19, the Terps have now won all four of their games in this early season by 18+ points as they continue their march upwards in the AP Top 25 Poll.
The victory over Fairfield saw several outstanding individual performances, including that of sophomore guard Eric Ayala, who came off the bench to score 13 points. Jalen Smith nearly had his third triple-double in four games, scoring 17 points and grabbing eight rebounds. Ricky Lindo Jr. played a season-high 21 minutes from the bench and promptly cashed in 100 percent of his six shot attempts, scoring 13 points to pair with seven boards.
The Terps will likely continue to see several bench players get significant minutes against George Mason as they get a better understanding of the roster structure with Big Ten play looming in December.
Maryland has dominated George Mason throughout program history, winning all eight matchups with the Patriots dating back to the 1981-82 season.
The game will be televised on BTN.
Maryland: 4-0 (0-0 Big Ten)
George Mason: 5-0 (0-0 Atlantic Ten)
All-time series: Maryland leads 8-0
