Regarding American and the league, I thought the same thing today while driving between stops on my job. Match ups had a lot to do with them getting beat bad as Wisconsin has a tremendous defense and shoots from 3 as well as anyone. But American’s calling card all year was defense & a Princeton style offense. Bo’s not a vindictive type coach, so to lose by 40 says they didn’t show up, mentally or physically. And yes I also believe the league was down.
As for Lehigh, next year will reveal a lot. Lots of youth means lots of room for improvement. And lots of pressure on the coaching staff to bring this team along in every phase, particularly rebounding, defense, and communication.
