On the Season: 127-51-23 (.689)

This Week’s Picks:

Friday, Feb. 3 and Saturday, Feb. 4
Rochester Institute of Technology at Air Force – The Tigers won the only meeting so far between the two teams back in November, which evened the all-time series between the teams at 14-14-3. I’m expecting two close games, with each team coming away with two points. RIT 3, Air Force 2; Air Force 2, RIT 1.

Sacred Heart vs. Bentley – The rest of the series this weekend are all home-and-home affairs. In this case, the Falcons host first. I think they take all four points. Bentley 4, Sacred Heart 2; Bentley 4, Sacred Heart 1.

American International vs. Holy Cross – The Crusaders are coming off a sweep at the hands of Connecticut and I think they get back on track this weekend. Holy Cross 3, AIC 1; Holy Cross 5, AIC 4.

Canisius vs. Robert Morris – The Colonials host Friday before the actions moves to Buffalo on Saturday. I’m picking the home team in each game. Robert Morris 3, Canisius 1; Canisius 3, Robert Morris 2.

Niagara vs. Mercyhurst – This should be an entertaining series with both teams well within striking distance of first place. Niagara is on a roll right now, and it’s tough to pick against that. Niagara 3, Mercyhurst 2; Niagara 2, Mercyhurst 1.


Tuesday, Feb. 7
Army at Connecticut – This is a makeup for a contest that was cancelled back on Oct. 29 due to bad weather. The Huskies have taken both prior games between the teams this season by a combined score of 7-0. I think they’ll take the season sweep. UConn 4, Army 1.
