Game 19
Lafayette vs. Lehigh
January 23, 2010

The Leopards were looking for redemption as they squared off against Lehigh for the first time since falling short in last year's Patriot League title game. Redemption will have to wait as Lafayette fell 66-51 to the Mountain Hawks. LaKeisha Wright finished with a game-high 15 points. Lafayette out-rebounded the Mountain Hawks 33-28. The Mountain Hawks won the opening tip and took control early, jumping out an 8-2 lead. The Leopards tied the game at eight-all on Wright's layup with 15:53 on the clock. Lehigh went up by five (14-9) before two Alicia Manning free throws at 11:53 cut the lead to one (14-13). That was the closest Lafayette got as the Mountain Hawks built a 20-13 advantage midway through the half. That margin increased to double figures (23-13) on Alex Ross's three-pointer at 7:58. Lehigh closed out the half on an 8-2 run and held a 34-22 edge at the midway point of the game. Lehigh maintained at least a 14-point lead for the majority of the second half.
