Live Stream: George Mason and Richmond Renew an In-State Rivalry

George Mason and Richmond will face off as conference rivals for the first time in 13 years tonight. The Spiders are hunting for a double bye in the Atlantic 10 Tournament.

Richmond and George Mason have not played a conference game against each other since 2001 when both schools were contenders in the Colonial Athletic Association, that changes tonight as the two renew their former rivalry for the first time as Atlantic 10 members.

Last year these two schools hooked up for the first time in nearly 12 years when Sherrod Wright downed the Spiders with a buzzer beater in the Governor's Holiday Hoops Classic in the Richmond Coliseum. Chris Mooney would love to keep the Spiders in the hunt for a double bye in the A10 Tournament and get a little revenge on Mason tonight.

Richmond is currently 8-4 and on the outside looking in in terms of the top four A10 teams. The Spiders are tied with VCU and UMass who are in the top four though. Mason, on the other hand, is just 2-10 in their first run in the A10 and are looking for some kind of spark heading into Brooklyn.

Tip-off is set for 7 PM from the Patriot Center and you can watch it live here on Mid-Major Madness thanks the the Atlantic 10 Network presented by Campus Insiders.
