The Colgate Raiders will be returning home after a two-game road trip. They will take on the Niagara Purple Eagles at 7 p.m. ET Monday at Cotterell Court. Colgate is expected to win again but is hoping to meet expectations this time.
It looks like the Raiders got the smaller half of the wishbone at Thanksgiving dinner. They were within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap last Wednesday as they fell 89-84 to the Harvard Crimson.
Meanwhile, even if it wasn’t a dominant performance, Niagara beat the Youngstown State Penguins 58-53 last week.
This next game looks promising for Colgate, who is favoured by a full 11 points. Those burned by picking them against the spread last Wednesday might want to keep in mind that the squad has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.
Colgate is now 3-3 while Niagara sits at 2-3. The Purple Eagles are 0-1 after wins this season, and the Raiders are 1-1 after losses.
