What to Know

Get ready for a Patriot battle as the Army West Point Black Knights and the Bucknell Bison will face off at 6 p.m. ET Wednesday at Christl Arena. Bucknell will be strutting in after a victory while Army will be stumbling in from a loss.

The Black Knights ended up a good deal behind the American Eagles when they played this past Saturday, losing 83-67. Forward Charlie Peterson (13 points) and guard Jalen Rucker (12 points) were the top scorers for Army.

Meanwhile, Bucknell narrowly escaped with a win as the squad sidled past the Lafayette Leopards 92-89. Four players on Bucknell scored in the double digits: guard Andrew Funk (20), guard Xander Rice (17), center Andre Screen (17), and guard Elvin Edmonds IV (11).

Army is the favorite in this one, with an expected 6.5-point margin of victory. Now might not be the best time to take the Black Knights against the spread since they've let down bettors for the past two consecutive games.

Army West Point's defeat took them down to 13-15 while Bucknell's win pulled them up to 7-21. Xander Rice will be someone to keep an eye on after he had 17 points and seven assists this past Saturday. Let's see if he can build on that strong performance or if Army West Point's defense can bottle him up.
