What to Know
The Colgate Raiders are 14-4 against the Army West Point Black Knights since January of 2016, and they'll have a chance to extend that success Wednesday. The Raiders and Army will face off in a Patriot battle at 7 p.m. ET at Cotterell Court. Colgate is out to keep their seven-game home win streak alive.
Colgate made easy work of the Bucknell Bison this past Saturday and carried off a 76-56 victory. Colgate can attribute much of their success to forward Keegan Records, who had 17 points in addition to three blocks, and guard Tucker Richardson, who had 19 points along with five steals. This makes it four games in a row in which Richardson has had at least three steals.
Meanwhile, Army lost to the Navy Midshipmen on the road by a decisive 70-53 margin. The top scorer for the Black Knights was forward Ethan Roberts (17 points).
The Raiders are the favorite in this one, with an expected 12-point margin of victory. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
Colgate is now 19-8 while Army sits at 14-13. Two offensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Colgate enters the matchup with a 50.60% field goal percentage, good for second best in college basketball. Army is not quite as good, but they are no chumps, either: they rank 29th in college basketball when it comes to field goal percentage, with 48% on the season. This one is shaping up to be an exciting offensive shootout.
