George Mason’s non-conference schedule is now complete with the addition of Pennsylvania visiting Fairfax January 2nd. Sad part is I’ve confirmed there is no return game and that means we won’t get to see Mason play at the Palestra, oh well. The Patriots already have an Ivy League school on the schedule with Princeton on the slate for November 26. However when I posted that I had thought it was the last game to be added, but this is in fact the last one.
It was a down year for Penn as they finished 9-22. Until the recent rise of Harvard they used to own the Ivy League auto-bid. This year they return all top scorers.
