Lafayette enters Sunday having won five out of their last six games, with the only defeat coming at the hands of league-leading Boston University. Outside of the blemish, this has been the team that everyone expected to see, the one picked second to the Terriers in the preseason by almost everyone.
A win against the Mountain Hawks gives the Leopards at least a chance to pull out of the final four spots in the league. That means avoiding a first round game and the need to win four instead of three games to get to the NCAA Tournament.
Can the Leopards add another split to their season, after losing to every team in the first go around? We will find out here at noon Eastern.
