Re: IFT Mirror at Maryland (10/13/12)

GMU is likely to come regardless of whatever date is chosen. Obviously with the high school tournaments scheduled at VCU and UVA the main concern should obviously be working around those and choosing an amicable date. Again, whatever date is chosen, we will likely attend with 1-2 teams.
