Men’s Basketball Rivalry Renewed as Hofstra To Battle George Mason This Season

One of the top rivalries from their days as Colonial Athletic Association rivals will be renewed this season as the Hofstra men’s basketball team will face George Mason.

The Pride and the Patriots will battle it out on Wednesday, November 30 from EagleBank Arena in Fairfax, Virginia. George Mason is the third announced opponent from the Atlantic 10 Conference on the Pride’s non-conference schedule.

“This was one of our great rivalries from our days with them in the CAA,” mentioned Hofstra Head Men’s Basketball Coach Speedy Claxton. “I know our fans will be excited for this match-up and we look forward to another strong challenging game on our non-conference schedule.”

Hofstra has previously announced non-conference games versus Iona (November 11), versus George Washington (November 14), at Saint Mary’s (November 19), at Purdue (December 7), versus Massachusetts (December 11 at the Barclays Center), and at South Florida (December 19).

All 23 previous meetings between Hofstra and George Mason occurred as members of the CAA, starting in 2001-02 and the most recent meeting in 2012-13.
