Boston University and Lafayette were supposed to be the ones fighting it out for the Patriot League title, but things have worked out slightly differently.
Only BU has a chance to still take the crown during the regular season, and with American's loss earlier this week, now sit just a single game out of first place. But before they take Lafayette too lightly, they may want to look at the stats over the season.
The Leopards are one of the best 3-point shooting teams in the country, which makes up for a lot of ills on the basketball court, the great equalizer if you will.
And the Terriers? They have a little trouble defending out behind the arc, as we saw in their game against American.
Can they close out on Lafayette today? We will find out when the two teams top off at 1 p.m. Eastern.
