Navy Midshipmen

Navy went 8-6 over their first 14 games this year, losing to Coppin State, Lipscomb, VMI, West Virginia, VCU and Holy Cross. The Midshipmen are 2-4 since then with losses to Colgate, Lehigh, Lafayette and Loyola MD. 

In the Army matchup on Saturday, Navy went into the break down 39-31. The Midshipmen were able to rally with a 46-32 second half and won 77-71. Christian Jones led the team on 21 points with four rebounds. 

Bucknell Bison

Over on the Bucknell side, they lost to St. Peter’s, Georgia, Marist, La Salle, Richmond, Rutgers and Holy Cross in their first 14 outings. The Bison are just 1-6 since then with losses to Boston U, Lehigh, Lafayette, Loyola MD, Colgate and Holy Cross. 

Matched up against Holy Cross on Saturday, the Bison were down 38-32 going into the second half. Bucknell didn’t end up gaining any ground and lost 80-73. Alex Timmerman was the leading team scorer with 17 points and nine rebounds. 


I’ll stick with Navy I suppose. Probably staying away, though. There’s not a ton of intrigue involved in this game as both teams are struggling lately. That said, Navy has posted a few good scoring outings recently with 67 or more points in four of their last six games. Bucknell has given up 67 or more points in six of their last seven outings, so there should be some opportunities to score here. Should be a fairly competitive matchup, and I think Navy pulls off the cover/win.
