- Lafayette returns home on Wednesday looking to right the ship after back-to-back losses a week ago. The Leopards are looking for the season sweep of Colgate as freshman Justin Jaworski hit the game-winner in Hamilton, N.Y. earlier this season for a 71-68 road victory.
- The Maroon and White are looking for more luck on their home court on Wednesday than they’ve had in the last three outings. Lafayette has lost by a combined 11 points in its last three home games, including a buzzer-beating loss to Bryce Dulin and Navy, and an overtime defeat at the hands of Bucknell.
- Junior Paulius Zalys has found offensive success from the low block since the start of Patriot League play, dropping in a career-high 25 points in the loss to Navy on 11-of-14 shooting from the field. Zalys is averaging 11.4 points per night since entering conference action, and that number increases to 12.8 per outing over his last four games.
- Next up for the Maroon and White is a trip to Lewisburg, Pa. on Saturday to battle Bucknell at 7 p.m.
