into Sweet 16
George Mason is in the Sweet 16 of the

Larranaga was on East Carolina athletic

George Mason (25-7) became the first
CAA team to reach the Sweet 16 since 1988, when Richmond advanced. It was
the second straight shocker for the Patriots, who defeated sixth-seeded
Michigan State 75-65 on Friday in the first round for their first-ever NCAA
