The semifinals portion of the 2013 Patriot League Tournament is here. The top four seeds all won convincingly to advance past the quarterfinals, winning by an average of 17 points. On Saturday, they will square off across various campuses around the conference.
In the first game of the day at 2 p.m. ET, No. 2 seed Lafayette will square off with No. 3 Lehigh. Despite being the lower seed, Kenpom's efficiency ratings shows Lehigh, ranked 93rd in the country, is a better team than Lafayette, who is 116th.
At 4:30 p.m., tournament favorite Bucknell will take on Army. The Bison are rated as one of the top defensive teams in the country and seem like the trendy pick to cut down the nets next week.
The full tournament bracket can be found here. The semifinals will not be televised anywhere, although fans can find the championship on CBS Sports Network.
