    To say this game is crucial states the obvious. Win in Baltimore tomorrow night and at home Saturday against “you know who” and we lock up 4th seed and a Patriot League Tournament home game the following Thursday March 1. Kenpom has us installed as a 3 point road favorite over the home standing Greyhounds. Can we shake off the Loyola jinx? If so, who will be the star? It could be any of 6 or 7 names as exhibited throughout the season.

    Hopefully LU65 and others will be adding their insightful analysis into this post.

    as long as they are working for the open shot, an open 3 is just as good as an open 2, play solid D and don’t turn it over and these guys will be very tough to beat, play sloppy and lazy on D and anyone can beat them, it is that simple

    Great win for Lehigh – 7 straight! I like how this team is playing now and they have to be seen as dangerous. Kahron Ross made some crossover dribble moves that made me wonder if I was watching an old film loop of CJ McCollum in Lehigh’s road brown.

    If Lehigh wins this weekend they will finish no worse than 4th and will be hosting someone in the PL Tournament on Saturday.

    Lehigh is ALIVE for the No. 2 seed. If Lehigh beats Lafayette, Navy loses to Loyola and Colgate loses to Holy Cross, Lehigh would be the No. 2 seed (T2 with Colgate, both teams were 1-1 against each other but Lehigh beat Bucknell once while Bucknell swept Colgate).

    I believe it works out like this:

    Lehigh W, Navy L, Colgate L –> Lehigh No. 2 seed
    Lehigh W, Navy W, Colgate L –> Lehigh No. 3 seed
    Lehigh W, Navy L, Colgate W –> Lehigh No. 3 seed
    Lehigh W, Navy W, Colgate W –> Lehigh No. 4 seed

    If Lehigh loses, they could either be in a 2-way or 3-way tie with BU and/or Navy. Lehigh loses tiebreakers with Navy (they swept us) or BU (1-1, they also beat Bucknell once, and Colgate once, but they also beat Navy once). So a loss would very likely put Lehigh as the 5th seed.
