Yale (4-5 in D-1) Ranked 120th
Lehigh (3-4 in D-1) Ranked 187th
Yale wins by 1 (78-77)
With 8 games in the book (7 if you count only D-1 opponents) and a good chance (39% to 81%) to win one of more of our final three OOC contests, you have to be thrilled with our prospects of finishing with 5 or more W’s. It wasn’t long ago, many of us were simply hoping for four. All this against an OOC Schedule ranked 58th toughest in the nation and two returning starters from last year. Not bad.
Our 5th guard in terms of both playing time (18.9 mpg) and scoring (6.8ppg), Caleb Bennett, leads the team in both FG% @ .606 and 3FG% @ .571. When warranted, a 4-G Offense can’t be far off.
A winnable game against Kenpom’s top Ivy. If we get a consistent defensive effort and an average shooting night, I like our chances. As always this year the defensive boards will likely be a key. Can we keep from getting killed on rebounding when they miss ?
