What to Know
The Lehigh Mountain Hawks and the Holy Cross Crusaders will face off in a Patriot clash at 7 p.m. ET Jan. 25 at Hart Recreation Center. Both teams come into the game bolstered by wins in their previous games.
Lehigh didn’t have too much trouble with the Lafayette Leopards at home this past Saturday as they won 61-49. The Mountain Hawks got double-digit scores from four players: forward Dominic Parolin (15), guard Keith Higgins Jr (10), guard Evan Taylor (10), and guard Jalin Sinclair (10).
Meanwhile, Holy Cross beat the Bucknell Bison 80-73 this past Saturday. Holy Cross can attribute much of their success to guard Will Batchelder, who shot 5-for-7 from beyond the arc and finished with 22 points.
Barring any buzzer beaters, Lehigh is expected to win a tight contest Wednesday. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a six-game streak of ATS wins.
Lehigh had enough points to win and then some against the Crusaders in the teams’ previous meeting earlier this month, taking their contest 76-58. The rematch might be a little tougher for the Mountain Hawks since the team won’t have home-court advantage. We’ll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
