Well, Todd called it: Navy over Army. He wasn’t the only one to go with the favorite. KenPom had it Navy by 4 and it was Navy by 4. But, as expected, the Cadets didn’t go down without a fight. They lead at the half and had it tied with a minute to go. Good effort, as one might expect, from the guys in uniform.
Here’s how KenPom sees it going down tomorrow night:
Colgate by 8 over Navy
Lafayette by 5 over Boston U.
Bucknell by 6 over Holy Cross
Lehigh by 4 over American
Upsets are certainly not out of the question. After all, not one of the favorites owns a swept over their opponent in regular season play this year. Read how each upset happened:
Navy over Colgate
Boston U. over Lafayette
Holy Cross over Bucknell

I’m not saying it will happen again but wouldn’t it be nice if it did? That is, of course, in all cases but one.
I’m headed out to Stabler – snow permitting – on Thursday. Hope to you there. TMH, I’ll be about 7 rows behind the LU bench.
