Colgate has also earned the top seed in the conference for the second year in a row. 

Colgate women's basketball assistant coach Katie Curtis says, "The Patriot League is a really competitive league in general so having accomplished this three years in a row is kind've a big deal and speaks a lot to his coaching ability for sure."
