Before the tournament I said I wanted no part of Holy Cross, but I thought they would run out of gas in the semi’s. Now, here we are. If anything, Holy Cross has gotten better in the last two weeks and is “peaking at the right time”. Dr. Reed said Wednesday is going to be a “war” and I agree with him.
The good news is we’ve already seen Cross 2.0 at Stabler not that long ago, so they won’t be throwing surprises at us on Wednesday. We know the 1-3-1 will be how they do things, along with Sam Champion being their go-to hot hand from the outside.
Not to take the thunder away from LU65, but Champion scored 25 against Lehigh the last time at Stabler. He was more of 1/3 of their total points in the game, and nobody else hit double digit scoring. Can Lehigh limit Champion?
