Jim Williams: CBS’ Davis: GMU can win it all

Last Sunday while George Mason was upsetting Connecting, Potomac/Rockville native Seth Davis
was on the set at CBS in New York text messaging his brother and nephew at Verizon Center about
how amazing the game they were watching was — a real once-in-a-lifetime game.
Davis is part of the entertaining “Road to the Final Four” studio team on CBS along with Greg
Gumbel and Clark Kellogg.
I spoke to Seth as he was on his way to Indianapolis for the Final Four. The George Mason storyline
was, of course, the main topic of conversation.
Jim Williams: Are we overstating the importance of George Mason making it to the Final Four?
Seth Davis: No not at all. GMU has accomplished something of historical importance and it cannot
be played down. They have captured the imagination of the country and the Patriots have become
“America’s Team.”
JW: Can George Mason win the NCAA title?
SD: Yes. One of the best things about the Patriots is that they aren’t just happy to be in the Final
Four, they feel like they belong. They have beaten some of the best programs in college basketball
to get to Indianapolis. So after all the things this team has accomplished how can anyone say that
GMU can’t win this?
Davis will join Gumbel and Kellogg on the pregame show on CBS 9 this weekend. Look for plenty
of Patriots features as this story continues.
