George Mason Patriots (12-6 SU, 8-6 ATS, 8-6 O/U) vs. Richmond Spiders (11-7 SU, 6-6-2 ATS, 6-8 O/U)

NCAAB: Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. EST

The Line: Richmond Spiders -6. Total: 147

The Richmond Spiders will be looking to bounce back from a rare loss when they host the George Mason Patriots at the Robins Center on Sunday afternoon. Richmond had won five games in a row before falling at Dayton on Thursday. The Patriots have dropped two of their last three contests after losing to Saint Louis last Saturday.

The Moore the merrier

George Mason senior Marquise Moore posted his third-straight double-double and 11th overall this season with 13 points and 16 rebounds when his team lost to St. Louis 63-56. Moore is putting up elite rebounding totals this season, and the numbers become even more impressive when looking at his stats historically amongst guards. He averages 8.9 defensive rebounds per game, which is tops amongst all Division I guards since Sports-Reference.com began keeping that statistic for the 2009-10 campaign. Moore’s 10.8 rebounds per outing are tied for the most by a guard since 1993-94. He is the only player 6-foot-2 and under to rank in the top 50 nationally in rebounding since 2001-02. Over the past seven seasons, Moore is the only Division I player 6-foot-4 and under to average at least 10 rebounds per game.

Unselfish basketball

Richmond returns home for a three-game home-stand after a five-game winning streak to begin Atlantic 10 competition was snapped at Dayton. The Spiders used a 14-0 run in the second half to tie the game after trailing by 11 points at halftime deficit but still ended up falling 75-59. T.J. Cline continues to make a case for Atlantic 10 Player of the Year, as he turned in his sixth 20-point game of the season to lead all scorers against one of the league’s top defenses.

Khwan Fore has quietly averaged 13.0 points, 3.0 assists and 3.0 rebounds per game in A-10 play. He ranks 8th in the league in steals per game (1.7). The Spiders have always run an offense with constant motion and crisp passes that lead to shots in rhythm. Richmond is at its best when every player on the court is setting up someone else for a shot. This year, the Spiders lead the league in assists (16.5) and are second in assist-turnover ratio (1.3). Richmond has dished more or same assists than the opponent in 15 of the season’s 18 games. UR ranks 12th in the country in assist-to-FG percentage of 62.9.

NCAAB Trends:

The George Mason Patriots are:

  • 4-1 ATS in their last five road games
  • 7-2 ATS in their last nine games against teams with winning records
  • 4-1 ATS in their last five games following a loss

The Richmond Spiders are:

  • 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 home games
  • 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 games against teams with winning percentages over .600
  • 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings between the two teams

George Mason is shooting 38.8 percent (33-for-85) from three-point range in conference play and limiting opponents to 28.8 percent (30-for-104). That defensive mark ranks second in the Atlantic 10.The Patriots are 4-1 ATS in their last five on the road, 7-2 ATS in their last nine against winning opponents, and 4-1 ATS in their last five following a loss. Richmond is 4-9-1 ATS in its last 14 at home, 3-9-1 ATS in its last 13 against opponents with winning percentages over .600, and 1-5 ATS in their last six against George Mason. Don’t be surprised if those trends continue.

Pick: George Mason Patriots +6
