What to Know
After a two-game homestand, the Lehigh Mountain Hawks will be on the road. Lehigh and the Colgate Raiders will face off in a Patriot battle at 7 p.m. ET Wednesday at Cotterell Court. Colgate will be strutting in after a win while the Mountain Hawks will be stumbling in from a loss.
Lehigh was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap this past Saturday as they fell 80-74 to the Boston University Terriers.
Meanwhile, Colgate made easy work of the Holy Cross Crusaders on Monday and carried off an 87-60 victory. Colgate got double-digit scores from four players: forward Keegan Records (16), guard Nelly Cummings (14), guard Ryan Moffatt (14), and guard Jack Ferguson (12).
Lehigh is the clear underdog, so they're hoping it's the size of the fight that determines this one. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 9-4 against the spread when expected to lose.
The Mountain Hawks are now 9-15 while the Raiders sit at 12-11. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Lehigh is stumbling into the contest with the fourth fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 10.1 on average. Colgate has experienced some struggles of their own as they are 21st worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 10.8 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
