Nice going with that LC pick, LUHoops00

A couple of things caught my eye the morning after. One, the wonder of the “3” and the way BU got it done in Round 1.

The 3-point shot

The good
Despite the horrific numbers below (first posted by DoubleSader on HC Board), Lafayette proved it was quality not quantity as they attempted just 41 shots from the field and made 13 of 19 from long range to win up in Worcester 84-76. This was the Leopards’ second win at the Hart Center this year and third straight up in MA. Up next: Bucknell…….Lewisburg, PA @ 4:30pm, Saturday.

A 28-10 run over the last eight minutes of the half gave Bucknell a 41-21 lead at intermission, the margin ballooned to as many as 31 in the second half, and no Bison player was needed for more than 24 minutes.
