The Mason Nation traveling well to the 2014 A10 Men’s Basketball Championship in our first year in the A10 is a great opportunity for Mason Nation to display on a big stage, in arguably the greatest city in the world, that our university is more than just one of the nation’s top up and coming universities.  It will show we care.

Unfortunately, expecting to make a run in the tournament may not be one of top 10 reasons to go this year.

As of the date of this posting, our team is still “undefeating” in the A10, so why go?
