Lehigh has somewhat of a profile due to their NCAA tournament success and the fact that they produced CJ McCollum of the Portland Trail Blazers. Be that as it may this is not expected to be a great Lehigh team this season.
Virginia profiles similarly just at a higher level in the ACC. If early results mean anything than their commitment to elite level defense will have them competitive against any team on their schedule.
Lehigh Mountain Hawks
Lehigh has split their first six game and is coming off a win over Princeton. There is nothing remarkable about their results so far this season but they have faced Power 5 level competition.
Big man Tim Kempton was the primary scorer so they needed to find a new go to guy. So far that has been guard Lance Tejada. He started his career at East Carolina but didn’t show much. he is averaging 15ppg.
Virginia is not a pressuring defense but you still need a steady hand to guide the ship if you want to win. Kahron Ross is a senior point guard with lots of experience. He will be the key to getting good shots.
James Karnik is the only player for Lehigh with real size. He is going to have to be a presence on the boards against bigger frontlines and play smart. He had 14 and 10 in a loss to Pitt.
It might feel like punishment to watch them play but the Cavaliers win. They have won all six of their games this season and covered in their last five. Top defense at 50.1ppg allowed.
Kyle Guy has stepped up as a sophomore. He leads the team in scoring at 16ppg and is critical as this team is not blessed with a lot of creative offensive players.
Virginia only has one other player averaging more than 8ppg – fellow guard Devon Hall. That lack of scoring depth might hurt them in conference but less so in this matchup.
Big man Jack Salt can be a difference maker with this shooting but he needs to be more assertive. His bulk will be umatched by Lehigh.

Free Lehigh Mountain Hawks vs. Virginia Cavaliers NCAAB Prediction:
Hitting the road to play a defense like Virginia’s is a very tough task…but the UVA offense often allows teams to stay in the game. I could see that happening here, for a while.
Once the Cavaliers find any sort of offensive rhythm they will pull away. This is not a good spot for an upset.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: No line currently posted.
I am expecting Virginia to be a pretty significant favourite, likely double digits. They should cover but they make me nervous as their scoring is unpredictable.
