Colgate’s Matt Langel voted Patriot League coach of year
HAMILTON, N.Y. (AP) — Colgate men’s basketball coach Matt Langel has been named Patriot League coach of the year.
Colgate was picked to finish fifth in the league and wound up second, matching the 2014-15 squad.
The Raiders (17-12, 12-6 Patriot League) tied all-time program records with 17 regular-season wins and 12 league wins and are one win away from tying the program record for wins in a season.
Colgate finished the regular season 11-3 on Cotterell Court, tying the home record for wins in a season. It’s the most home wins in 23 years.
The team also has secured the program’s first overall winning record in 10 years. The last Colgate team to finish above .500 overall was the 2007-08 squad that finished 18-14.
