This is an exciting week for the PL -- what is everyone's thoughts on the Lehigh/Bucknell game? It is my hope that Flannery and his boys do not become complacent, but I doubt they will overlook the hawks.
Lehigh is a weaker version of Holy Cross. Very good guard play....although they lack 3 great guards and instead only really have 2 (Knight and Olivero). MgBroff is better than anyone HC has inside, but is too slow to handle McNaughton on the inside. If Donald keeps playing out of his mind, that could create a real mismatch at the 4, as it did last year when he shot 10 of 10 for 22 points against Lehigh. On the road, we need to come out of the gates fast. If we are winning at the half, we win the game.
Glad someone's talking about this one. I know I'm really looking forward to it. No doubt we'll be underdogs, but with Knight back I feel like we have a shot. We'll need to hit our shots like we did at Lafayette on Saturday and that's going to be very tough against Bucknell's defense.
Now I'm off to try to get things started on our board.
