Herring Gets Mean; Patriots Get Victory


Siegel, Jon, The Washington Times (Washington, DC)


When George Evans said that George Mason teammate Erik Herring is a nice guy, it was not meant as a compliment.

"Yeah, I think we all are," Evans said following yesterday's 76-71 win over American in the Colonial Athletic Association opener for both at the Patriot Center. "We all need to be more aggressive."

The defending league champion Patriots, who looked like the team that advanced to the NCAA tournament last season in the first half, couldn't provide the knockout blow after intermission against the tenacious Eagles.

Patrick Doctor, (8-17) AU's sensational sophomore forward, led the Eagles' comeback and finished with a team-high 19 points before fouling out with 2:23 remaining.

"My disappointment is, we didn't match their intensity to start the game and fell into a hole," said AU coach Art Perry, whose team dropped to a 5-3 record.

The subplots of the day came as George Mason continues to search for a leader and a point guard. …
