ANNAPOLIS – There’s one obvious prevailing storyline at Alumni Hall – the fact Navy is seeking its first Patriot League tournament victory in exactly eight years.

The Midshipmen are the No. 3 seed in the PL field, and get a Colgate team that they upended here just four days ago.

The Raiders are probably the PL’s unluckiest team – most recently losing senior forward Alex Woodhouse for the season less than a month ago.

Navy swept Colgate for the first time since 2001 season, and should make it three in a row if guards Kaleo Kina and Chris Harris get on track early. Also look for center Mark Veazey, who can counter Nick Pascale’s size inside.

Tonight’s lineups:

NAVY (19-10, 8-6)

G-23-Avworo
G-5-Harris
G-24-Kina
F-33-Teague
F-44-Veazey

COLGATE (9-19, 5-9)

G-12-Venezia
G-1-Hill
F-33-Gyawu
F-40-Jonson
C-23-Pascale
