The George Mason men’s basketball team continues play in the 2013 College Basketball Invitational presented by Buick, opening championship round play at Santa Clara University on Monday night. This is the fourth meeting against the Broncos, who have won two of the previous three games.
Santa Clara is 24-11 on the year, earning the finals berth thanks to their 81-69 win at Wright State on Wednesday night in Dayton. SCU has also recorded wins over Vermont and Purdue during the CBI. Three Broncos average double figures, led by Kevin Foster’s 19 points per game, a figure which ranks 27th in the nation.
Junior guard Sherrod Wright has started every game this season, the only Patriot player to do so. With his expected start on Monday night against Santa Clara, Wright will set a new single-season school record with his 36th start. That eclipses a mark of 35 set by Lamar Butler and Will Thomas both during the Patriots’ Final Four season of 2005-06.
