The match up between Bucknell and Lehigh last year was one that was circled on everyone's calendar, this year...not so much. C.J. McCollum and Mike Muscala have moved on and these two teams are trying to work their way back into the upper echelon of the Patriot League.
The visiting Bucknell Bison come in with a 4-4 mark in the Patriot League and fresh off a heartbreaking home loss to Boston University 64-61 on Saturday. Senior Cameron Ayers continues to lead the Bison and he had 23 points in Saturday's contest against the Terriers. On the year Ayers is fifth in the conference in scoring, posting 14.4 points per contest.
Lehigh is coming into Wedneday night's game with a little momentum. The Mountain Hawks slipped past Navy 68-66 early in the week and then took down lowly Lafayette 71-68 in a rivalry game. Mackey McKnight is right behind Ayers on the conference scoring list with 14.2 points per game and he's also second in the Patriot League in assists with 6 per outing.
Tip-off is set for 7 PM tonight from Stabler Arena and we'll have it live here MId-Major Madness thanks to the Patriot League Network powered by Campus Insiders.
