Hagan '85 Arena. Both teams are tiptoeing into their matchup after sneaking past their previous opponents.

The George Mason Patriots typically have all the answers at home, but on Sunday the Hawks proved too difficult a challenge. Saint Joseph's skirted past the Patriots 79-76. Among those leading the charge for Saint Joseph's was guard Erik Reynolds II, who shot 5-for-12 from downtown and finished with 30 points.
