George Mason Scores Twice

The George Mason Patriots double-dipped on Sunday. A big and a wing found it their Patriotic calling to play for the CAA program.

Sunday night was productive for the George Mason Patriots.

Jim Larranaga's troops scored not once but twice.

Big man Johnnie Williams and wing Luke Hancock made Mason their choice. Each had strong options and Williams was in the middle of a high-major visit spree.

"I visited Oklahoma State and Alabama and was going to Boston College," Williams told

The Patriots appealed to Williams on a few levels. "Really it's because I know I can go up there and possibly be a starter and do good things. I'll block shots, rebound and scorer. Another reason was academically, they're one of the best in the country. Plus, I have family up there right down the street."

Hancock's pledge should be celebrated as well.

"I saw Luke Hancock a lot last year and I always felt like he was an undervalued, under recruited kid," Hargrave coach Kevin Keatts said. "Some people missed the boat on him and he fit into that category. He's worked and gotten better since he's been in here.

"Everybody came in to talk to him. He's had the most action of all of our guys in the contact period and it was well-deserved."

Toledo, Air Force and American were the primary suitors for the crafty, multi-positional wing.
