HAMILTON, NY — Monday nights are usually quiet across the college basketball landscape, with teams from the MEAC and SWAC usually occupying the bulk of the game slots.

January 8th features both those conferences, as well as the Patriot League. On the same night as the College Football National Championship, there aren’t any top 25 match-ups or power conference teams in action, and the attention of most fans will be on the gridiron as opposed to the hardwood.

With that said, there are still some intriguing match-ups across the college basketball world. One of those games comes from the aforementioned Patriot League, where the Navy Midshipmen will visit the Colgate Raiders in the fourth game of conference play for both teams.

The Midshipmen and Raiders are a part of a seven-way tie for first place in the conference standings, sitting at 2-1 through three games. The race for the Patriot League crown is shaping up to be an exciting one, and a win for either Navy or Colgate could go a long way when all is said and done.

Here’s what you need to know in advance of Monday’s tilt between the Raiders and Midshipmen. Continue reading January 8th Game of the Day: Navy Midshipmen at Colgate Raiders

Ten players to know for the 2017-18 season: Patriot League

Bryce Dulin emerged as a star for Navy last season, and the game he entered the forefront came on the road against the Midshipmen’s biggest rival.
CALGARY, Alta. — In recent years, several stars have left their mark on the Patriot League, and the NCAA as a whole.

Heading into the 2017-18 season, that appears to be the case once again. While some of the conference’s biggest names have moved on to the next chapters of their respective basketball careers, whether that be in the professional ranks or as a transfer in the NCAA, there is a plethora of talent coming back that will make the race for the conference title one to watch.

There may be a clear-cut favourite as the season approaches, but it’s anyone’s game when it comes down to the conference tournament. Any team can get hot at the right time, pull of some upsets, and make a post-season run to the Big Dance.

Below are ten players to keep an eye on in the Patriot League for the upcoming season. With ten teams, it only makes sense to pick one player per program.

CALGARY, Alta. — Conference tournaments officially get underway on Monday, which means the 2017 NCAA Tournament is just around the corner.

Selection Sunday is less than two weeks away, which means it’s also time to get looking at some teams who could be surprise entrants into the field of 68 as conference champions.

Every year, teams get hot down the stretch and ride the positive momentum into the NCAA Tournament, and that will be the case again this season. It’s inevitable.

Cinderellas make their first appearance in the two weeks prior to the Big Dance, rolling to unexpected conference tournament titles as lower seeds and ‘stealing’ a bid from the top teams in their respective conferences. As college basketball fanatics, we love the drama that comes with March.

Some prefer to see the best teams from each conference go to battle in March. But, if teams earn the right to be in the field, we’d much rather see that. Plus, who doesn’t love the underdogs?

This is the first edition of the ‘Trifecta’, where we will focus on groups of three players, teams, or events that will affect March Madness.

Below are three teams who could very well knock off the top teams in their respective conferences, thus earning themselves a coveted spot in the field of 68 that otherwise wouldn’t come their way.
