COACH AND PROGRAM

Jim Larranaga became George Mason's all-time leader in coaching victories last winter when he presided over his 131st Patriots' win -- a satisfying 77-58 blowout of archrival James Madison.

With 12 lettermen, including all five starters, returning from a team that went 16-13, don't be surprised if Larranaga adds a few more victories to his record total this season.
