Notable Games

Bucknell @ Lehigh: Probably the biggest game of the night. The winner of this game gets the final Patriot League Tournament spot, while the loser’s season is done. The Bison was a dark horse pick to win the Patriot League, but have been inconsistent for the entire season. They’re led by junior Will Sands, who has a team-high 60 points, including 41 assists, and Connor O’Hara, who has 30 goals. Lehigh’s led by a ton of sophomores, including Tristan Rai, Andrew Pettit, Lucas Spence, and LSM Craig Chick. Will Lehigh’s strong core of sophomores pull them ahead in this game?

Loyola @ Army West Point: The best of the seven games on tap for tonight. The winner gets first place in the Patriot League. If Army West Point loses, they’ll be in second. If Loyola loses, they’ll be in either second place or third place. They’ll fall to third if Boston University defeats Holy Cross.

Holy Cross @ Boston University: Not the most important or best game tonight, but a BU wil could mean a lot of things regarding the Patriot League standings. As mentioned above, a win and a Loyola loss would mean BU gets a first round bye in the Patriot League Tournament. A loss could put BU in fourth. The Terriers hope to continue their success after beating Loyola last weekend in overtime.

Canisius @ Monmouth: The Hawks look to continue their MAAC dominance with a possible MAAC Tournament matchup with Canisius, who’s lost three of their last four, including two straight. Monmouth is easily the best team in the conference, and are the favorites to get the conference’s automatic qualifier for the NCAA Tournament.
