"""....There is plenty of optimism this year for George Mason. Minus the departures of senior forward Louis Birdsong (2.6 ppg, 2.0 rpg) and sophomore forward Kevin Foster (4.5 ppg, 3.2 rpg), who is transferring to Central Florida Community College, the Patriots return everyone. George Mason brings in two freshmen in shooting guard Bryon Allen and center Jonathan Alredge. Allen comes in with the reputation as a premier scorer. Alredge may compete for a starting spot, but nevertheless should get major minutes because of the lack of depth in the frontcourt.

George Mason’s best returning player is senior guard Cam Long (12.2 ppg, 3.9 rpg, 3.1 apg). He led the Patriots in scoring, assists and steals last year. Simply put, when Long played well, the team won. In losses, Long shot just 27 percent. In wins, he made 47 percent of his shots. Last year, he had an inconsistent shooting season, making only 38 percent overall and 32 percent from 3-point territory. As a sophomore, however, Long made 46 percent overall and 40 percent from 3-point range. If Long can shoot with the efficiency he shot with two years ago, expect him to have numbers rivaling the top mid-major players in the country...."""
