Over on KenPom, the results aren’t much different.

Lehigh: We entered play against Lafayette ranked 60th. Our win over the Bison levated us to 56th entering play against Lafayette. Our loss to the Leopards dropped us 25 slots to our present 81st post. For what’s it worth, Lafayette jumped 32 positions after beating us raising their ranking to a yearly best 214.
Things could be worse, I guess. Consider Southwestern Athletic Conference member, Grambling. The Tigers are ranked dead last by Pomeroy @ 347 and have been there from the start of the season. Today, they 0 -17. Yes, they are the only D-I team without a win. Hat’s off to their 1,716 loyal fans who crowd their arena each night. Up next for the Tigers is the 340th ranked Mississippi Valley State team. Grambling is given an 11% chance by Pomeroy of pulling off an upset. And, we fans of Lehigh feel bad today. I guess it’s all relative.
