Game 16
Lafayette vs. Colgate
January 13, 2010

Three players in double figures and 63 points were not enough to lead Lafayette to a win over Colgate, evening both team's league records at 1-1. The Raiders came away with the 71-63 win, spoiling the Leopards' long-awaited return home. Three Leopards reached double figures, led by LaKeisha Wright's 14. Sarah McGorry matched her career high with 12 points and Elizabeth Virgin fell one rebound shy of a double-double (10 pts, 9 reb.). The lead changed hands several times before the Raiders took a 20-11 advantage thanks to a 12-0 run. McGorry put a stop to the run with a free throw that made it 20-12 with 5:12 left in the opening half. Samantha Jordan sank two free throws with 42 seconds remaining to cut it to a three-point game (28-25) but Colgate took a 29-25 lead into halftime. Both squads traded baskets to open the second half before a three-point play by Tricia Oakes put Colgate back up by 10 (41-31) with 17 minutes remaining. Amanda Leone briefly brought the team within five (45-40) on a layup, but the Raiders built their lead back to double figures with 5:14 on the clock and held on for the eventual eight-point win.
