Poor Army

It's not bad enough that the Cadets have to cap their one-win season by playing the league's top seed in the first round of the Patriot League tournament. Now it seems they will have to do it with a split squad.

According to the official league page we linked toto in this spot earlier this morning, here are the first round matchups:
Friday, March 4
Patriot League Tournament - Quarterfinals
No. 3 AMERICAN vs. No. 8 NAVY (at Bucknell), 5:30 p.m.
No. 4 LEHIGH vs. No. 5 COLGATE (at Holy Cross), 5:30 p.m.
No. 2 BUCKNELL vs. No. 8 ARMY (at Holy Cross), 8 p.m.
No. 1 HOLY CROSS vs. No. 8 ARMY (at Holy Cross), 8 p.m.
Not only does Army have to play two opponents at once, apparently they will roll back the bleachers at the Hart Center and play both games simultaneously using the cross court baskets.

Not sure who will be more upset by this schedule, Army for having to lose twice at the same time or Bucknell for having to go to Worcester while AU and Navy play in Lewisburg.

We apologize for linking to that page. Obviously, like the league, we did not proofread it first.

Fortunately Kyle had the pairings right yesterday at Mid-Majority. We thank him for taking time out of his 100-game odyssey to point out the problem on the league's page.
