Game 25
Lafayette vs. Bucknell
February 17, 2010

Holding a two-point lead with one minute remaining, six Lafayette free throws over the final 60 seconds capped off a 13-0 Leopard run for a 60-54 win over Bucknell. In a game that featured six tied scores and eight lead changes, Lafayette's dominant run to end the game's final minutes snapped the Leopards' seven-game slide while handing Bucknell its fourth consecutive loss. Lauren Jackson led the Leopards (5-20, 3-8) with 21 points, just one shy of her career high. Lafayette's bench also proved to be a difference maker, out-scoring the Bison's 26-4. The game was tied 28-28 at halftime. As was the pattern for most of the game, the lead continued to switch hands for the majority of the second half. Two LaKeisha Wright free throws at 11:45 put Lafayette up 44-41 but the Leopards surrendered that lead on a Felicia Mgbada layup with 5:43 on the clock that made it 48-47. The Bison took a 52-47 lead on Cosima Higham's jumper at 3:39, but a Downey three-point play tied it again at 52 with two minutes left. Wright broke the tie less than a minute later for a 54-52 Lafayette lead and Jackson sank five of the Leopards' six free throws in that final minute to clinch the critical league win.
