Starting to think Nova isn't very good.  Bucknell got crushed by Michigan (Michigan was up 48-19 at the half).  Lehigh nearly beat Nova as well, and Lehigh was handled pretty easily by Canisius.  Good for Bucknell if they can hold on, but I think Nova is in for a very long year.

They have nine more rebounds than Nova. Imagine.  
Nova wins.

Nova may not be playing their best ball right now, but I doubt they are in for a long year.   Last year they were a top ten team, 28-3 in the regular season and an easy Big East regular season title, and they only lost one player who matters.   I'd be surprised if they aren't at least close to the top ten at year-end and I'd also be surprised if they don't repeat as Big East regular season champs.

Bucknell is a very young team, still trying to find itself and to find the right player combos.   They played well the second half against Michigan, even vs their first string - which may have given them some confidence in this game.   Tonight three frosh were key players - which is a good sign for the future.   Chris Hass, btw, had 53 points combined versus Michigan and 'Nova.

Nova struggled a little last year with us and Delaware early. Wright knows what he's doing.
Hass was the best player on the court last night. Bethlehem product Hilliard was big late.
