What you need to know about Holy Cross

On Wednesday, the Crusaders lost to the American Eagles on the road by a decisive 67-49 margin. Gerrale Gates was just about the only bright spot in the blowout loss, as he posted a double-double with 18 points and 13 rebounds. The 6-foot-6 and 250-pound power forward is averaging 15.4 points and 8.4 rebounds per game in his second season at Holy Cross after transferring from New Orleans.

The loss was the 11th in the last 12 games now for the Crusaders and they’ve also failed to cover the spread in their last three losses. Holy Cross shoots just 41.6 percent from the floor as a team, ranking 296th in the country in that category. They’ll need to earn higher-quality looks to get back on track on Friday night.

What you need to know about Lehigh

Meanwhile, the Army West Point Black Knights typically have all the answers at home, but on Wednesday Lehigh proved too difficult a challenge. The Mountain Hawks beat the Black Knights 84-71 and had all five starters reach double-figures in scoring, with Tyler Whitney-Sidney leading all scorers with 19 points.

Holy Cross came up short against the Mountain Hawks in the teams’ previous meeting earlier this month, falling 77-69. Evan Taylor had 15 points and 12 rebounds for Lehigh in that victory while Gates had 21 points and nine rebounds in a losing effort. A matchup between those two stars could be critical on Friday.
