I think this is an intriguing matchup because this will be Bucknell’s second crack at this team and they’ll have been sure to look at the tape of the Lafayette game to see how they bottled up TK underneath. Key for Lehigh is to control pace and emotion. If it’s a full-court, frenetic pace with a lot of made baskets, that favors Lehigh. If Bucknell can slow the pace and put cement shoes on TK, they will have a golden opportunity to clinch the league tonight. Worryingly, Navy, Holy Cross and Lafayette have been successful on fitting TK with the cement shoes in 3 straight games, and Lehigh’s 1-2 in those games (and without that Chuku 3 at the end of the 1st half vs. Navy, they might have been 0-3).
