A lot of the "Seven Sisters" schools went coed, very few of them remain girls only.

The things you learn on Billikens.com. Never heard of the “Seven Sisters” schools or even the Seven Sisters before. 

From Wikipedia:

The name Seven Sisters is a reference to the Greek myth of The Pleiades, the seven daughters of the Titan Atlas and the sea-nymph Pleione.[1]The daughters (Maia, Electra, Taygete, Alcyone, Celaeno, Sterope, and Merope) were collectively referred to as The Seven Sisters.[2]

Mount Holyoke College, Smith College, Wellesley College, Bryn Mawr College, and Barnard College are still women's colleges. Vassar College is currently a coeducational college, and Radcliffe College dissolved following its official merger with Harvard College in 1999.

Not sure how up to date the info is though.

I think the divisions are increasingly blurred between Ivy schools and their girls only counterparts. Barnard has accepted male Columbia students in their courses and vice versa for quite a long time. Harvard and Radcliffe shared professors, lectures, and students well before their merger. Mount Holyoke was (is?) part of the academic sharing between 5 schools in and around Amherst MA (UMass, Holyoke, Amherst Coll included), with students being allowed to take classes and get automatic credits for courses in other schools within the group.

George Mason leading Maryland 32-31 at half. Josh Oduro looks very improved from when we played Mason 2 seasons ago, and their transfers look great as well. 

George M will end up higher than mid A10 as predicted by the scribes. 

Rhody takes down ACC doormat and future Billiken opponent BC with the Mitchell twins blocking 10 shots and going for a combined 18 points.

Rhode Island 57, BC 49
George Mason 71, #20 Maryland 66
VCU up 12 at Vandy in the second half.

So on a night when the league looks like it'll take all three games against power conference teams, Dayton loses at home to Lipscomb, St. Joe's loses at home to Drexel, and La Salle loses in OT at Delaware.

So George Mason proved you can both be a good mid major team and beat a ranked team. Something we have yet to do since 2013.

I question whether a high major team that has Fatts Russell as a starting guard is really that good.  But I'll take it.  The A-10 needs all the high profile wins it can get.

I will concede that George Mason's four guard attack will be a handful.  They've got size, good athleticism and they can all handle and shoot.

Pretty obvious conclusion here, only schedule P5 teams.

Mason completes the upset.
 

How long before Mizzou is on the phone to buy out Anderson from his Mason contract. Bet they would like him to bring his entire team to Columbia. 

Mizzou can't fire Martin until 5/1/22.  After that it costs them $6 million to fire him if they do it before 5/1/23.  I'm sure right now almost any Mizzou fan would trade Martin for English, but they're likely stuck with Martin for the rest of this year and next.
