Larranaga's George Mason came into the 2005-2006 season believing they had a chance to be the best team in school history. After a shaky start the Patriots found their groove finishing the regular season 22-6 and feeling great about their NCAA Tournament chances. That confidence took a hit when Hofstra knocked them off in the conference tournament. George Mason found themselves squarely on the bubble heading into Selection Sunday.
Patriot faithful blew a huge sigh of relief when they were announced as the #11 seed in the Washington Region. Waiting for them was Tom Izzo and #6 seed Michigan State. 75-65 Patriots, one down. Next up, #4 seed North Carolina and Roy Williams. 65-60 Patriots, hello Sweet 16. After knocking off fellow Cinderella Wichita State in the Sweet 16 the Patriots ran into #1 overall seed UConn.
An overtime stunner put George Mason in the schools first Final Four! The Patriots became the 2nd #11 seed in the history of the NCAA Tournament to reach the Final Four matching LSU in '86 (later matched by VCU and Loyola-Chicago).
