Kids these days

Another interesting installment from Lehigh's student newspaper, the Brown and White, which argues:
The league has been inconsistent this year and at this point in the season the Patriot League title is for grabs.

No team seems has laid claim to the title just yet and the Hawks are ready to make a run and repeat as champions.
Newflash kids: Holy Cross has not lost since the first game of conference play and now holds a two-game lead over your beloved Mountain Hawks, with five games to play, four of which HC will be home for.

Since Army and Lafayette are two of those four, that is effectively a two-game lead with three to play. For lehigh to even get a share of the title, it would need to beat Holy Cross in Worcester and get some help, most likely from Bucknell. And if that were to occur, Bucknell would likely get the regular season crown by virtue of a sweep of Holy Cross (Lehigh would have a sweep of American, but that would leave AU out of the tie for first, thus Bucknell's sweep of HC would be the tiebreaker that would matter.)

Of course this is all probably worthless speculation, since it is hard to imagine Holy Cross losing two more the way they are playing right now.
