Lehigh vs Fordham

Lehigh 78, Fordham 60

  •  

NEW YORK (AP) - Gabe Knutson had 21 points to lead four double-figure scorers for Lehigh as the Mountain Hawks dropped Fordham 78-60 on Thursday night for their sixth straight win.

Holden Greiner scored 18 points, C.J. McCollum 15 and Mackey McKnight 10 for the Mountain Hawks (6-2), who tied their longest winning streak since the team's Patriot League Championship season of 2009-10. The Mountain Hawks posted four players in double-figure scoring for the fifth consecutive game.

Fordham led 29-28 at the break, but Greiner connected on three 3-pointers early in the second to help pull Lehigh ahead 46-45 midway through the half.

From that juncture, though, the Mountain Hawks put together a 9-2 run over a 2 1/2 minute span for the cushion they'd need to seal it.

Devon McMillan led the Rams (2-3) with 16 points, and Chris Gaston added 14 points and a game-high 12 rebounds.
