East Region: George Mason Patriots (8) vs. Villanova Wildcats (9) Fri. March 18, 2011 2:10 p.m. EST

A few years ago, the George Mason Patriots were a no-name college basketball program that somehow punched their ticket to the Big Dance. Once the Patriots got going in that NCAA Tournament they were able to defy the odds every single game and make it all the way to the Final Four. Even though they were unable to win a National Championship, George Mason became a household name as they were the true definition of Cinderella story.

Last season they weren’t so fortunate as they couldn’t pull off a repeat performance, but this season they might have a shot at getting back in the mix as they head into the 2011 NCAA Tournament as the eighth seed in the East Region. Even though the George Mason Patriots (8) might be able to go the distance once again, they didn’t exactly get lucky in terms of the draw as they will face off against the Villanova Wildcats (9) in their first game.

As of right now, the George Mason Patriots (8) have been given the edge in this first round matchup with a -1 point spread. Obviously, with a spread like this the odds makers don’t have that much faith in their prediction, but I believe this team will find its stride in the Big Dance once again as they should advance to the next round.
