LU ranked 213th
HC ranked 268th
LU – 5
LU ranked 198th
HC ranked 230th
LU is given a 76% chance of winning this game
Predicted Score: 79-72
To claim the top seed in the upcoming PL Championship series, LU needs to either win this game or have AU beat LC earlier in the day (CBS College Sports live broadcast at 4pm) down in DC. Nailing down the top seed would also assure LU of seeing both Navy and AU in their playoff bracket as both squads are destined to finish 4 and 5 or 5 and 4. The brackets seeding will look like this:
1 vs 8
4 vs 5
2 vs 7
3 vs 6February 27, 2010 at 4:06 pm #1764
Lost in all the media coverage of the Bucknell game (certainly not a topic of discussion on the Bison Board) was the fact that Zahir Carrington played just 8 minutes and scored only 2 of LU’s 81 points. Since returning from an early-season injury, Zahir has played a minimum of 21 minutes in each game up until that BU event a few nights ago. Today is senior day and you can be sure our emotional leader, Mr. Carrington, will be ready to extent his court time and deliver a quality performance, if history is our guide.
Here’s a look at his "point/rebound/minute" production following a game in which Zahir failed to hit for double digits…….
12 / 14 / 30 vs. Colgate on 2/17/10 following a game against Army
20 / 2 / 30 vs. American on 2/6/10 following a game against Holy Cross
20 / 6 / 33 vs. Army on 1/17/10 following a game against Navy
10 / 6 / 26 vs. NJIT on 1/2/10 following a game against Delaware State
12 / 13 / 26 vs. Marist on 12/22/09 following a game against St. Joseph’s
That’s an average of 14.8 pts. / 8.2 rebounds / 29 minutes. May these be his numbers tonight.February 27, 2010 at 5:34 pm #1765
The seniors have worked hard the past 4 years. The practices and coaches have not been easy. Wishing them the best tonight and in their future. An education from Lehigh will remain with them for life. Good luck seniors. Thank you for your dedication to Lehigh basketball.February 27, 2010 at 6:08 pm #1766
Although Matt Shamis is eligible to play next year due to a medical redshirt, he appears to be included in today’s Senior Day ceremony. Perhaps:
1. He decided not to return to Lehigh next year due to graduation; or
2. He was willing to come back, but his scholarship and spot on the team went to B.J. Bailey.February 27, 2010 at 9:55 pm #1767
We’re lookin’ good! At the half, it’s AU 45 and LC 26.
AU leads pts. in the paint 18-2 and their 3’s are falling, as well. LC’s 3’s aren’t.
GO AU!!!February 28, 2010 at 12:01 am #1770
For the fourth consecutive year, Lehigh faces Army in the quarterfinal of the Patriot League Tournament. However, this year, the result will be much different!February 28, 2010 at 1:15 am #1772

If we beat Holy Cross and Army wins later tonight, we’ll play Holy Cross. But I’m hoping we play Army too and get that monkey off our backs.February 28, 2010 at 2:37 am #1773
LU BEATS HOLY CROSS and BU downs Army.
WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!
Bring on Army!
See you at Stabler Wednesday.February 28, 2010 at 4:35 am #1774
No way should Lehigh lose to Army. However, we need the student body to show up. Last year, it felt like a home game for Army. They bring a tremendous pep band—When they swing into "Grand Old Army Team" they drown out everything else.
Something I noticed the other night…sitting fairly high up on the northern side of the arena. you can’t really read the scoreboards because of the banners hanging down–I had to rely on the guy sitting next to me to tell me how much time was left. That needs to be rectified.
