It doesn't matter to me when or if we play Lehigh again. It wouldn't be any less painful losing to them in the final vs. the semi if it comes to that. So, yes, watch the games and don't worry about who we play in the tournament.

Rumor has it that Sam Hinkie has been seen in Bethlehem. Trust the Process might be their new saying in order to be guaranteed a favorable match up in the 2nd round of PL tournament.

How about we play the tough zone we are a capable of playing and end this conversation? Holy Cross is not anywhere near as good as we are and they handled them like they were playing Williams.

BUCKNELL (12-3): @BostonU, Lafayette, Navy

BOSTON (11-4): Bucknell, @Army, @Holy Cross

NAVY (10-5): Army, American, @Bucknell

LEHIGH (9-6): @Lafayette, Colgate, Army

LOYOLA (8-6): Colgate, @Holy Cross, American

Sunday's Bucknell game at BU is HUUUUUUGE. If we ended up tied with them, Terriers could be in strong tiebreaker shape where records against next highest seed are compared.

Especially since our last game is against Navy and we'd be trying to give them one more loss, which could have the effect of elevating Lehigh to the 3rd seed and thus giving BU the tiebreaker. (Feel free to point out scenario nuances I'm missing!)

Hopefully they also pick up the Bison home game the following Saturday against Navy. That is by far the best game that day. The only other decent game is Boston playing at holy cross, and that clearly is not nearly as interesting a game.


Your hopes have become reality: Navy at Bucknell season finale will also be on CBS Sports http://www.patriotleague.org/news/2017/2/16/MBB_02 ...

Umm, that was not the best analogy...

Yo, the league is slacking...shouldn't we be seeing league seeding scenarios on these updates by now?

Army was down by about 25 with 12 minutes to go at Navy and just came back to win, unbelievable. Now a Bison win tomorrow wins them the regular season title.

I believe it was a 42-14 run by Army to finish the game. A Bucknell win won't give them the outright regular season title yet but it would give them the one seed in the tourney.

I can't believe Army pulled that game out. Lehigh could easily pass Navy for 3rd now.

Has Lehigh clinched no lower than 3rd? I know they split with Boston and Navy...is the next tiebreaker - "wins vs. Bucknell as the top-seed?"

Wouldn't Lehigh get the 4 seed if they and Boston lose and Navy wins? All would be tied and Lehigh would have the worst group head to head.

Oooops. I miscounted. Then yeah, I suppose Lehigh would be 4th in that scenario.
