Bucknell (8-6) has played the toughest OOC schedule and has nothing to be embarrassed about losing to Syracuse, Minnesota, Vandy, LaSalle, and George Mason. Their 6th "L" sticks in their craw a bit, I suppose, falling to Loyola (Md) out in Lewisburg 67-72. Check out their board for worrisome comments on speed and athleticism. They may have trouble with Cornell at home tomorrow night but should roll on Tuesday over Dartmouth. They begin PL play year up at The Point on Sat., Jan. 7th.
My experience the past 5 years is when PL play starts, the teams find energy to compete. As for BU, Paulsen made some changes in the lineup, the point in particular. Maybe the players are adjusting to the change. LU must be careful because Paulsen has some talent on the bench, namely my guy Andoh, who as we know can shine when given an opportunity. He knows Adams very well as you know they were teammates. On that note, I was at a Mitty game a couple of years ago and there was a picture of Adams guarding Andoh during one of their matchups in the school program. Pretty cool. Again, I think BU is a dangerous team and LU needs to be on point while at the same time, BU needs to be on point when they play LU.
