Colgate was the best team in the Patriot League during the regular season and they ran away with the title, winning by six games. The Raiders aren’t elite offensively, but they are great on defense, allowing just 63.4 points per game. Bucknell has won four games in a row and they have held their last four opponents to 57 points or fewer. Colgate defeated Bucknell twice in the regular season by scores of 62-50 and 84-73 and I think they will win this game easily. Take the Raiders here.
