2016 Patriot League Tournament Predictions
But who will be getting the PL's auto-bid to the NCAA's? Here are my predictions.
All games at higher seed
1st Round - Tuesday, March 1st
7 Navy vs. 10 Lafayette - Annapolis - Patriot League Network, 7:00
8 Loyola vs. 9 Holy Cross - Baltimore - PLN, 7:30
Pick: Holy Cross
Quarterfinals - Thursday, March 3rd
1 Bucknell vs. 9 Holy Cross - Lewisburg - PLN, 7:00
4 Army West Point vs. 5 Colgate - West Point - PLN, 7:00
Pick: Army West Point
2 Lehigh vs. 7 Navy - Bethlehem - PLN, 7:00
Lehigh has already lost to Navy at home this season and they barely beat them on the road. I'm feeling the upset yet again.
3 Boston vs. 6 American - Boston - PLN, 7:00
Semifinals - Sunday, March 6th
1 Bucknell vs. 4 Army West Point - Lewisburg - CBS Sports Network, TBD
3 Boston vs. 7 Navy - Boston - CBSSN, TBD
Championship - Wednesday, March 9th
1 Bucknell vs. 3 Boston - Lewisburg - CBSSN, 7:30
Picking the top seed is never fun but the PL makes it easy. As we all know, a tournament like 2015 was an anomaly. And even as the conference has been a little all over the place this year, the Bison do indeed look like the best team.
