Colgate has shown a capacity to play with anybody in the Patriot League, when healthy, but the Raiders are missing starting point guard Jordan Burns and have been inconsistent.
Burns wasn’t just Colgate’s starting point guard and leading assist man with 5.5 dimes per game, he also leads the team in scoring with over 17 points per game.
He last played on January 19, at Boston University, a game Colgate won by 21 points. After the game, it was determined he had a leg injury that would take at least a couple of weeks to heal.
Well, it’s been two weeks now and there isn’t a definitive word on whether or not Burns will return to play Lehigh. I’m betting he won’t, which means freshman Tucker Richardson will play big minutes as the backup point guard.
Richardson has played an average of 38 minutes over the last three games and, while he’s racked up 21 assists, 10 turnovers has hurt his team.
Lehigh Mountain Hawks
At 8–2, Lehigh is tied with Bucknell for the lead in the Patriot League. One of the Mountain Hawks’ losses came at home to Bucknell, the other came at Colgate.
That game was back on Jan. 12, when Burns was healthy. He went 8-for-18 and scored 23 with 12 assists. A trio of Raiders scored at least 20 and Richardson, the young man who has taken over Burns’ point guard duties, had 17.
The biggest reason Lehigh lost that game may have been turnovers, though. Colgate coughed it up just five times, compared to Lehigh’s 15.
In Bethlehem, that discrepancy will, at least, be smaller, if not reversed. The Raiders will also miss Burns’ playmaking. Lehigh deserves to be a solid favorite.
