Two teams remain in the 2017 Patriot League Tournament, as the Bucknell Bison will take on the Lehigh Mountain Hawks in the championship game. The winner will earn an automatic bad to the NCAA Tournament, so the stakes couldn’t possibly be any higher.
Bucknell earned the #1 seed in the Patriot Leauge Tournament after winning the regular season title with a 15-3 record in conference play. To get to the championship game, the Bison beat #8 Army 78-62 in the quarterfinals and #4 Navy 70-65 in the semifinals.
Lehigh came into the tournament as the #3 seed. The Mountain Hawks were tied with Boston University for second in the Patriot League in the regular season with 12-6 records, but they lost the tiebreaker due to their 0-2 mark against the Terriers. That wouldn’t matter to Lehigh in the slightest, as they beat #6 Colgate 77-72 in the quarterfinals and #2 Boston in a 91-88 double-overtime thriller in the semifinals.
The Mountain Hawks swept the Bison during the regular season, beating them 82-71 on the road and 79-71 at home. I’ll most definitely be rooting for Lehigh to pick up one more W over Bucknell, as any school that sends Duke home in the first round will always hold a special place in my heart.
Now that you know a little bit about the matchup, let’s breakdown all of the ways you can watch the championship game.
