Should we get by American in the quarter-finals on Thursday night, our next opponent in the semis to be held on Sunday would either be:

Colgate (with a win over either Army or Navy on Thursday) @ Colgate
Army (should they beat Navy on Tuesday and Colgate on Thursday) @ Lehigh
Navy (should they beat Army on Tuesday and Colgate on Thursday) @ Lehigh

How about a Lehigh Valley final between Lehigh and Lafayette on Sunday, March 11th ? And, at Stabelr Arena, no less! Dream on, you say. Well, our friends over in Easton are probably thinking they could hold up their end of the bargain with back-to-back wins over teams they have already beaten once this year. And, that includes Bucknell. It’s now up to us.
