Top seed, Bucknell cruised past Navy 58-42, while 2nd seed Lafayette took care of Holy Cross by a score of 77-54.
Meanwhile, 3rd seed Lehigh had the toughest test of the day against Colgate. They came away with a 71-64 victory. The Mountain Hawks overcame a 4 point deficit at half to advance in the tournament.
