The skinny: The Boilermakers will try to continue the momentum from their rout of Central Connecticut State. The Broncs opened their season on Tuesday with a 92-78 loss at Lehigh, allowing 58.8 percent shooting, including 14-of-23 from 3-point range. Forward Daniel Stewart scored 24 points and guard Anthony Myles, the team’s leading returning scorer (12.4 ppg), added 12. Last season, coach Kevin Baggett’s first, Rider finished second in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (picked seventh) and made the CIT. This season, the Broncs were picked fourth.
