I haven't watched Mason play very much this year, but they seem to play to the level of their competition. Played well at Kansas, beat Dayton and Bonaventure, but lost to GW and ODU. Is that what you've seen from them?
Like St. Bonaventure, Mason now has a talented and connected starting 5 with no bench.
If you take one of their big 3 scorers out of the lineup, they become an also ran A10 team.
The most recent example is GW. oduro was a last minute subtraction from lineup. Mason blew a 15 point lead midway thru the second half becuase they had no bigs to plug the middle, GW had a layup line going.
