Bucknell @ Lehigh

2 small, but pretty good, Pa. schools from the Patriot League are on the card tonite. These 2 met about a month ago at Lewisburg, with Lehigh pulling off the 3 pt win. Lehigh only shot 27% from the field, but hit 56% from deep in that game. That's their game, the 3. And they're tough at defending the 3 as well. Their top scorer, McCollum, has been out since the first of year with a broken foot. He got hurt in a 4 pt loss to VCU. They've still managed to hang tough in conference play without him.

Bucknell is the complete opposite in style. They have a big man inside, 6'11" Muscala. He can score on anyone. Very talented. If Muscala gets in foul trouble, it'll be tough for Bucknell to win. With the contrasting styles, however, I don't think that will be a factor. Bucknell has played the more difficult schedule this year between the two. Wins over Purdue, Mason, NM St, Kent St, and LaSalle. 3 pt loss to Penn St and 2 pt loss to Mizzu. These guys can play.

Revenge in Bethlehem tonite? This is a big rivalry. Don't think revenge matters much in this matchup. Both lost to lower tiered schools on Sat. Think they were looking ahead to this one? Both are 8-2 in league play. If Lehigh wins tonite, they'll hold the tie-breaker. If Bucknell wins, I think both should be in the Dance, ..... but I'm biased. Hate to bet against Denham's boys. Especially at home. Just this once, Sean!!

PTW

Never heard of nropp. Just read his stuff. He sure does like to write. Thanks. Pretty knowledgeable guy. He's right, these 2 are about as different styles as there is. He may be right tonite. I really like both these teams. I've been whining about not having lines on these guys all year. I get one, and it's when they play each other. ha One thing about 3 pt shooting teams, when they're hot, they look unstoppable. When they're not? They look awful. Lehigh lives and dies by the 3. They hit them and I'm cooked. This game should be awful close. Both are good at FTs too. 1 pt game at the half. 13-4 run by Lehigh to end it. GL if you played either one.

Helluva game! Back and Forth

Bucknell +2 ..... win

Call me stupid. Just hit up VCU +4 for tomorrow. Although StL lost to URI at home earlier, they've pretty much rolled everyone else. This game is the meat in a 3 game week for them. Charlotte on Sat, VCU tomorrow, and at Butler on Friday. As much as I like StL, this league is just too tough to roll through. I'm gonna love watching these 2 play. All except Ellis' floppin', that is. If the Billies beat VCU tomorrow, I'll be hammering Butler come Friday.
