Championship (Game 9): Boston University vs. Colgate
The Colgate Raiders are dominating Patriot League play thus far, but with a KenPom ranking of 122, this is an obvious one-bid league. Colgate will have home floor throughout the tournament, so another school will likely have to knock them off on the road to get a chance at representing the Patriot League in March Madness.
