As we draw closer to March Madness, I can’t help but to analyze each conference for teams either worth an At-large bid or one whom is on the bubble. Here, I examine the Patriot League, which according to KenPom is the 24th best conference. That seems generous too, given that the Army Black Knights had the best overall record at 19-13 and the fact that the Holy Cross Crusaders won the Patriot League tournament as the 9th seed. The same Crusaders who were 10-19 heading into the tournament and were 5-13 in conference. I guess this just exemplifies my reason for calling their conference the 24th best was generous
Best Teams: Bucknell Bison, Lehigh Mountain Hawks
On The Bubble:
Note: Did I mention that the Holy Cross Crusaders won the Patriot League tournament?
