The Holy Cross Crusaders enter the 2012 Patriot League men's basketball tournament as the No. 4 seed after finishing the season with a 9-5 conference record. The Crusaders are probably the hottest team in the Patriot League as the tournament begins as they won their final six games of the regular season.
Bucknell, which lost to Holy Cross during the Crusaders' win streak, will enter the tournament as the league's No. 1 seed. The Bison won the Patriot League tournament and the league's autobid to the NCAA tournament last season. Holy Cross has won the most Patriot League tournament titles with five (1993, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2007).
