George Mason Patriots Notes
Amari Kelly registered 17 points (6-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds and three blocks over 29 minutes during Monday’s 72-61 victory over Monmouth. Kelly led the Patriots in blocks and co-led in points, while also posting a surgical 67-percent clip from the field. The senior transfer got off to a hot start in his debut for George Mason, as the squad looks to build on it’s fifth-place conference finish last year. The forward will look to maintain his momentum against another out-of-conference opponent when the Patriots host Austin Peay on Friday night.
Tennessee Volunteers Notes
Tobe Awaka (ankle) is expected to participate in Tennessee’s game Tuesday against George Mason, per Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports. Awaka returned to practice Sunday and was a full go, which is why he is now expected to partake in Tennessee’s upcoming game. If such is the case, Awaka will have sat out only one game because of the ankle injury he suffered in late-November.
