ECAC West picks: Jan. 11

Went 4-0 last week, and am 29-5-4 overall (.795) so far this season. Taking on six nonconference contests this weekend, as all ECAC West teams will be in action for the first time in 2013.
Friday, Jan. 11
Utica at Cortland
The No. 8 Pioneers (11-2-0 overall), winners of six straight, should continue on their recent roll as they start a four-game road swing. Utica, 6-3
Fredonia at Neumann
The Knights (7-4-2) should feed off last week’s championship at the Northfield Bank Tournament in Vermont, including a win over No. 1 Norwich. Neumann, 4-2
Saturday, Jan. 12
Nazareth at Oswego
Oswego is reeling a bit after being blanked by Utica last week, but beating the Lakers (5-8-1) is probably too tall a task for the fledging Golden Flyers. Oswego 5-3
Morrisville at Elmira
The Soaring Eagles (5-9-0) need to start picking up wins. Now would be a perfect time to start. Elmira 3-2
Manhattanville at Cortland
The No. 12 Valiants get back to work after having been off since Dec. 31 and a 3-2 loss to Babson. Manhattanville 4-3
Sunday, Jan. 13
Hobart at Nichols
The No. 3 Statesmen (11-1-2) are probably chomping at the bit, having been off for more than a month since a 3-2 OT loss to Oswego  on Dec. 8. Hobart 7-3
