Patriot League winner Lehigh
is hanging in there with Duke. Last team to beat Lehigh was American U
in DC. Lehigh crushed us in the semifinal 85-66 and then beat Patriot League conference winner Bucknell
82-77 in front of Bucknell's 4,300 fans.
In the 2012 NIT
, Bucknell was seeded #8 and beat #1 Arizona on Arizona's home court. Their 6'11 Mike Muscella
's C. J. McCollum
are both juniors
, but they were great last year too. Either team could get a better NCAA seed in 2013.
EDIT: Duke has 3 starters with 4 fouls with 6:14 left...
Lehigh 53, Duke 49
