One thing’s for sure: even with a home game, Lehigh will face no sissy in the first round.
Army? Beat Lehigh in Bethlehem, and has a history of giving Lehigh fits in the PL tournament.
Colgate? Owns a series sweep against us.
Lafayette? We’ve swept them during the regular season, but I am not eager to face them again, especially considering Sunday’s nail-biter.
Navy? Holy Cross? These are not patsies by a long shot. Navy has a likely ROY on their team, and Holy Cross is improving in leaps and bounds.
I think Bucknell and American fans are having similar conversations, too. This is the most wide-open field there’s been in a long, long time in the PL tournament. Whoever wins is going to have to play consistent, strong ball, and it’s not at all outlandish to think an Army or Colgate could put things together and shock a top seed. I hope Lehigh is getting ready for this – and they’ve learned their lessons well from Sunday’s game.
