LEWISBURG, Pa. - One of the most highly anticipated Patriot League men's basketball games of the season will now be televised throughout much of Central Pennsylvania, as "Pennsylvania's WB" - WSWB TV-38 Scranton-Wilkes-Barre - will air Wednesday's Bucknell-Lehigh showdown live at 7 p.m.
The game will also air on WFMZ-TV in the Lehigh Valley and on Fox College Sports (FCS) Atlantic. Steve Degler and Nathan Jameson will call the action from Sojka Pavilion.
Bucknell (12-0 Patriot League) and Lehigh (11-1) are the top two teams in the Patriot League standings, and the two squads are battling it out for the regular-season title and home-court advantage throughout the Patriot League Tournament. The Bison can clinch the title with a victory.
Bucknell, which was ranked No. 24 in the nation until suffering a tough double-overtime loss at Northern Iowa on Saturday, defeated Lehigh 59-54 in the first meeting between the two teams on Jan. 25.
