EASTON, Pa. (AP) Seth Hinrichs matched his career high with 28 points and Lafayette held on for its first victory, 79-76 over Penn on Saturday.

Fran Dougherty's 3-pointer with 10 seconds left got the Quakers (2-4) within 78-76. But Joey Ptasinski's free throw made it a 3-point game and the Quakers' Tony Hicks then missed a 3-pointer.
