What to Know

The Massachusetts Minutemen and the George Washington Colonials are set to clash at 6 p.m. ET March 10 at Capital One Arena in the second round of the Atlantic 10 Conference Tourney. The Minutemen will be strutting in after a win while George Washington will be stumbling in from a defeat.

On Saturday, UMass narrowly escaped with a victory as the squad sidled past the George Mason Patriots 83-80. Massachusetts' guard Noah Fernandes was one of the most active players for the team, picking up 28 points in addition to five rebounds.

Speaking of close games: George Washington was close but no cigar on Saturday as they fell 70-66 to the Fordham Rams. Guard James Bishop wasn't much of a difference maker for George Washington; Bishop finished with only eight points on 3-for-12 shooting in his 37 minutes on the court.

Barring any buzzer beaters, UMass is expected to win a tight contest Thursday. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

The Minutemen came up short against the Colonials when the two teams last met earlier in the regular season, falling 77-68. Can UMass avenge their loss, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll soon find out.
