The Richmond Spiders and George Mason Patriots will be battling it out later on tonight. Our friends over at SilverChalice.com will be providing the matchup between these two Atlantic 10 teams for free. Live streaming for this contest will start at 7 p.m. ET.
The Spiders cannot afford to lose this late in the season. Well, at least not to a team like the Patriots. Richmond is currently on the bubble and a loss to a bad team this late could have it playing in the NIT instead of the 2014 NCAA tournament.
However, Richmond will be playing this game on the road. George Mason will be the underdogs in this one, but it will be interesting to see if it can play spoiler.
The Spiders enter this contest with an overall record of 18-9 and a conference record of 8-4. You can say the Patriots are not as good of a team. They come into this matchup with an overall record of 9-17 and an A 10 record of 2-10.
A loss would be very devastating to Richmond, but given its talent, it should have no problem coming away with the victory. Still, it should be an entertaining matchup.
Once again, thanks to our friends over at SilverChalice.com for the live streaming of this game. Enjoy!
