Who's Playing

George Mason @ No. 15 Auburn

What to Know

The #15 Auburn Tigers and the George Mason Patriots are opening their 2022-2023 seasons against one another at 8 p.m. ET Monday at Neville Arena. Auburn went 28-6 last year and got to the second round of the NCAA tournament before losing to the Miami (Fla.) Hurricanes 79-61. Meanwhile, last year was nothing to brag about for GMU (14-16), so the team is looking forward to a new start.

The Tigers have the odds in their favor, so they'll need to guard against complacency. These early season matchups can go either way as both teams get back into playing shape.
