The Lehigh Mountain Hawks aren’t playing well at the moment, so this chalk is a bit confusing. However, it’s just a sign of how bad Holy Cross is. Lehigh is bound to turn things around at home, where it wins by an average of 11.5 points while allowing 38.6 percent shooting. The Holy Cross Crusaders don’t play up to their competition. I’ll lay the chalk.
