George Mason fell to Iowa State in the first round of the Diamond Head Classic on Sunday. The Patriots were able to slow down the Cyclones and hold them to their second lowest scoring total of the season but it just wasn’t enough. They ended the first half with only four turnovers and down only five. This was all despite Sherrod Wright being mostly invisible. In the second half Iowa State was finally able to force the pace and their balanced attack was too much for Mason to compete with. The Patriots sent them to the line for 22 free-throws in the second half.
