Undefeated powers collide tonight in the Patriot League! One of them you're aware of: league favorite and ESPY winners Bucknell, who are off to a 5-0 start after bravely battling the top teams in the nation. You probably aren't familiar with the home team tonight, Lehigh, unless you're old enough to remember their 2004 PL championship and loss in the play-in game. The Mountain Hawks have won seven straight, including a romp over ancient rivals Lafayette
The present-day hero of this Mountain Hawk team was a freshman on that NCAA squad -- Jose Olivero
is a solid two-guard who's averaging 17.4 ppg. When the ball goes down low, it's a block party (league-leading 3.5 bpg), but it's an intelligent tea-sippin' affair (league-low 15.9 fouls per game). We'll see what happens when Mr. McNasty
brings his loud rock and roll to the Bethlehem bash.
