A Look at Lesley University:
The Lesley Lynx posted a 7-9 conference record last season with solid wins over Regis, Daniel Webster, and Southern Vermont. They suffered a 1-point loss to Gordon College, runners up in the Commonwealth Coast Conference.

Friday marks the first game of the 2013-2014 season as well for the Lynx. They faced Franklin Pierce University, a Division II team that made it to the Elite 8 last season, on Tuesday in an exhibition game.

Lesley likes to push the ball in transition, looking to get to the rim or kick out for the open three. In the half-court, Lesley has shown a 4-around-1 motion offense with a heavy emphasis on dribble penetration. The Engineers will have to contain Lesley's transition offense and clog the lane with their length.
