What to Know
The Lafayette Leopards will square off against the Pennsylvania Quakers at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday at Palestra. UPenn should still be riding high after a victory, while the Leopards will be looking to right the ship.
Lafayette was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap last week as they fell 90-85 to the Cornell Big Red.
Meanwhile, the Quakers didn't have too much breathing room in their matchup with the Bucknell Bison on Sunday, but they still walked away with a 73-68 win.
Lafayette have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 10 point spread they are up against. They have failed bettors playing the spread in all their past two games, so buyers beware.
Lafayette is now 0-1 while UPenn sits at 1-2. A pair of last-season defensive stats to keep an eye on: The Leopards are 353rd worst in college basketball in points allowed per game, with 76.7 on average. The Quakers are stumbling into the game with the 35th most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
