    Let’s nail down the #2 seed with a win tonight! But, for those who dream big, here’s how we end up #1 (as mentioned far above in this thread). Simplly, we need a number of things to happen. That’s the bad news. The good news is that one has already gone our way.

    1. BU must lose to Army — they did!
    2. BU must lose to HC — tall order, but we’ll see
    3. CU must win at LC – not so impossible to believe
    4. BUCKY must win one – not two – of their final two
    5. LU must sweep their final two

    Hey, in this wacky year, why not!?

    Good first half, outside of some sloppy turnovers. Bucky and pards tied at the half, btw.

    Lehigh clearly best team in PL.

    Bucknell beats Lafayette 83-80 in double overtime.

    Lehigh has clinched the #2 PL Tournament seed. Here is what has to happen for Lehigh to get the #1 PL Tournament seed:

    1) Lehigh beats Army AND
    2) Navy beats Bucknell AND
    3) Holy Cross beats Boston U AND
    4) Colgate beats Lafayette

    Lehigh also seems to play well in Lewisburg. Additionally, Colgate has a good shot at getting the #4 or #5 seed, and could play Bucknell in the PL quarterfinals. The Red Raiders beat the Bison twice this season.

    I don’t think the way Lehigh playing, they fear any team, home or away. 8-0 in February.

    I think the 1-seed might be gone. I think. American beat Navy tonight, and I think that guarantees BU a share of 3rd. Bucky swept them, and we don’t have a sweep in the mix to offset that. Unless I’m doing this wrong, I think a 3rd place tie between BU and Colgate could happen, which would be a wash. But then the tie-breaker could fall to our records vs. Loyola (7th place!) – whom Bucky swept.

    A Boston U/Colgate tie wouldn’t be a wash because Lehigh swept Colgate and split with Boston U (3-1 record) while Bucknell swept Boston U but got swept by Colgate (2-2 record). The #1 seed is still in play, but it is a slim shot that requires 4 games to go the Mountain Hawks’ way.
