BETHLEHEM, PA. (AP) - Lehigh, which defeated Bucknell in an upset last Wednesday to win the Patriot League tournament title, has been given a No. 15 seed, and will play Duke in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
The Mountain Hawks (26-7) went 11-3 in conference this season, and defeated Colgate, American, and the Bison to win the tournament.
They will now head to Greensboro, N.C., to take on the Blue Devils, who were given a No. 2 seed after not advancing to the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament championship game.
Bridging the regular season with the postseason, Lehigh is riding an eight-game winning streak into the matchup, and hasn’t lost since a 71-62 defeat at American on Feb. 9.
