- Lafayette will look to start its move in the Patriot League standings on Wednesday night, hosting Army in Kirby Sports Center. The Leopards have three of their next four games at home, hosting Loyola on Sunday and American on Feb. 17 following a trip to Navy on Valentine’s Day.
- Freshman Alex Petrie has been sensational since the start of Patriot League play, leading the team in scoring in conference contests at 18.3 points per game. Petrie is shooting 50.0 percent from three-point range against Patriot League foes and has tallied double-figure scoring in each of his last nine outings.
- Senior co-captain Matt Klinewski saw his streak of 25 straight games scoring in double figures come to a close on Saturday at Bucknell. Klinewski finished with three points on 1-of-7 shooting from the field in the defeat.
- Lafayette will look to close out Army this time around after letting the earlier meeting this season slip away. The Leopards led by as many as 19 in the second half in West Point on Jan. 11, but fell in the end, 81-71.
