Bucknell rarely loses at home in the Patriot League, but Boston University came in and won in Lewisburg in the middle of last week.
Every team in the conference has at least one loss already so Bucknell doesn’t have ground to make up in order to win the conference, which it expects to do, but it probably feels like it already should have a stranglehold on the standings and missed its chance.
The Bison did right the ship on Friday with a 17–point win at Army. Zach Thomas and Nana Foulland combined for just 12 points, their lowest output of the season but the Bison’s role players stepped up.
The three other starters all scored in double-figures and combined for 49 points. Ben Robertson scored 11 points in 15 minutes off the bench for the 107th team in the country, according to KenPom.
Army (187) is the only other team in the conference in the top-200.
At #272, Lafayette is the fourth-worst team in the Patriot, according to KenPom. The Leopards are one of seven teams in the conference at 2–1 after wins against Holy Cross and then at Colgate.
Matt Klinewski leads the team in scoring with over 18 points per game.
The senior forward had attempted four three-pointers in the three previous seasons but has gone 27-for-54, which explains why he’s scoring more than 2.5 more points per game this season than last, despite taking more than a full shot less per game. He had 22 in 26 minutes against Colgate in the team’s last win.
One of Lafayette’s two wins out of the conference came against D-III Susquehanna. The game was tied with as little as five minutes remaining and the Leopards only won by 12.
I can’t sign off on them being a live dog in this game against a Tournament-quality Bucknell team.
CBB Betting Trends:
