Loyola and Colgate have combined to lose seven straight games and both came into Saturday's match up looking to snap those streaks. Earlier this year the Greyhounds took down Colgate 67-60 in Baltimore and were looking for a sweep of the Raiders on Saturday.
While Saturday's game may not look like a particularly big one it did hold a bit of significance. The numbers seven and eight seeds will get to host a first round game in the Patriot League Tournament and Loyola current stands eighth tied with Lafayette at a 5-10 mark in the league. Colgate is dead last at tenth in the league at 3-12 but is just one game behind Navy in the Patriot League standings.
Tip-off is set for 2 PM from Hamilton, New York and we'll have it live here on Mid-Major Madness thanks to the Patriot League Network presented by Campus Insiders? Can either of these teams build some momentum going into the Patriot League Tournament?
