Lehigh at Bucknell, 2 p.m.:Despite Lehigh's loss at Colgate, this is still the weekend's marquee matchup. A win in Sojka would give the Mountain Hawks road wins at American and BU, thus a significant edge in the battle for one of the top two spots and a homecourt advantage in the first two rounds of the tournament.
No updates from Bucknell on the status of Bison coach Pat Flannery for today's game. Flannery left Friday's win over Lafayette at the half after becoming ill.

American at Holy Cross, 3 p.m.:Two once-beaten in league play teams in an important game that will end with one of them no worse than firmly entrenched in second place and maybe even a three-way tie for first if Lehigh wins at Bucknell.
HC's freshman point guard Pat Doherty has played well in two games filling in for the injured Torrey Thomas. He will get a stiffer test against American's veteran backcourt.

Lafayette at Colgate, 1 p.m.: Cornell needs to avoid a letdown after a big win Friday. Lafayette needs to find a way to keep the Raiders' 3-point snipers from beating them. Easier said than done.

Navy at Army, 1 p.m.: Realistically, this is Army's best, and possibly last, chance for a win over a Division I opponent this season. Equally realistic, it is hard to imagine the Black Knights have enough weapons to beat Navy, which has also struggled, but has far more competitive than Army.
Then again, at least Army has managed to avoid losing to any Division 3 teams.
If you are lucky enough to live someplace where they actually include College Sports TV on the cable, you will have to find something else to watch before the NFL games get underway. The broadcast of the Army-Navy game has been cancelled.
