Colgate vs. Navy: Three things to watch
Navy owns an 11-4 advantage in this Patriot League series, and the Midshipmen have won three of the last four meetings. No. 16 Colgate (6-2 overall and 1-0 in the conference) has won three consecutive games since dropping back-to-back contests to No. 2 Cornell on March 2 and Hobart three days later. The Raiders are averaging 10.9 goals per game this season and headlined by senior attackman and 2012 Tewaaraton Award winner Peter Baum. Navy (3-5, 1-2) has dropped its last two outings and has averaged just 6.2 goals in those five losses. Junior attackman Tucker Hull, who led the team in goals (23), assists (24) and points (47) last year, is third in goals (nine) and points (15) so far. Here are a few factors that could influence the outcome at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore Saturday.
