LEHIGH

SETTING THE SCENE

The Lehigh men’s basketball team looks to continue its recent home success when the Mountain Hawks return to Stabler Arena on Wednesday to host Navy. Opening tipoff is set for 7 p.m. on Stadium’s

national channel and the Patriot League Network. The Mountain Hawks have won their first two home games in league play, and four of their last five in Stabler Arena overall. Lehigh and Navy are

two of four teams tied for fourth in the Patriot League standings at 2-2.

The Mountain Hawks and Midshipmen are set to square off for the second time in 13 days after Navy earned a 64-58 win in the league opener for both sides on Jan. 2. That marked Lehigh’s eighth straight defeat, but since, the team has bounced back with two wins over its last three games. Most recently, the Mountain Hawks picked up a wire-to-wire victory over American on Saturday, winning 82-73. Lehigh jumped out to a 15-2 lead and wouldn’t look back. American pulled as close as two on multiple occasions, but the Mountain Hawks erased much doubt with a 12-0 second-half run to turn a two-point advantage into a 14-point, 53-39 lead with 12:22 remaining. The Eagles wouldn’t pull any closer than seven the rest of the way. Freshman Evan Taylor scored eight of those points during the run, as he finished the

game with 14 points and a career-high eight rebounds. Along with his 13 points and six boards at Boston University Wednesday, Taylor was named Patriot League Rookie of the Week on Monday. It marked

Taylor’s first-career weekly award and the Mountain Hawks’ first weekly honor of the season.

Senior Jordan Cohen led the offense with 25 points, just one from tying a season high and his fourth

game of the season with 20+ points. Cohen shot 8-of-12 from the field and 8-of-9 from the free throw line, also tying a career-high eight assists and posting five rebounds and two steals. In the process,

Cohen moved from 34th in program history all the way to 31st for career points (moving from 1,055

to 1,080). Two others recorded double-figure points; junior Marques Wilson had 15 points (his fourth

straight game with double-figure points) while freshman Reed Fenton recorded 14.

Lehigh did have 16 turnovers compared to just nine for American, but the Mountain Hawks were

efficient offensively, knocking down a season-high 53.8 percent of their field goals (28-of-52) while

holding American to 37.5 percent (27-of-72). Lehigh’s 82 points scored marked a season high against a Division I opponent.

The Mountain Hawks continued their impressive recent success against American, winning their 10th straight game vs. the Eagles. In seven of those contests, Lehigh never trailed. Overall, the Mountain Hawks have only trailed for 19:38 over those 10 games (405 minutes), which is only 4.8 percent of the time.

IF LEHIGH BEATS NAVY

- Lehigh would split or sweep the season series against Navy for the ninth time in the last 10 years. - The Mountain Hawks would improve to 5-2 at

home this season and win at home for the fifth time

in their last six tries.

SUSTAINED SUCCESS

- Lehigh has enjoyed impressive success, especially over the last 10 years (2010-19), earning a Patriot

League Quarterfinal home game in nine of those

seasons.

- Over the last 10 years, the Mountain Hawks are second in the league in number of tournament

cham-pionships (two), second in average finish (2.80) and second in quarterfinal home games (nine).

- Lehigh is also second in number of Patriot League (regular season) victories (102) and number of

dou-ble-figure win seasons (seven).

- Over the last seven years (even without current NBA standout CJ McCollum), the Mountain Hawks still stand second in total (regular season) Patriot League victories in that span with 75.

- Lehigh is one of just two teams to post 10+ Patriot League regular season victories in each of the last

five years.

TOUGH NONLEAGUE SCHEDULE

Lehigh has tested itself (and been extremely com-petitive) against some of the nation’s best. Following their game at Auburn, the Mountain Hawks’ strength of schedule according to Ken Pomeroy stood as the 21st toughest in the nation. It was No. 22 as of Dec. 31 heading into Patriot League play. Lehigh faced four opponents in the top 100 of the Ken Pom rankings in the nonleague (all numbers as of Dec. 31): Auburn (15), Saint Mary’s (25), Virginia Tech (63) and Yale (70). Seven of the Mountain Hawks’ 10 Division I nonleague opponents posted a winning record before their respective conference action.

Lehigh led undefeated Auburn 20-13 midway

through the first half and after a Tigers’ run, pulled

back within seven (48-41) with 7:56 still left in the game. A month prior, the Mountain Hawks trailed

reigning Sweet 16 team Virginia Tech by just five at

the half, and trailed reigning NCAA Tournament team Saint Mary’s by only two after 20 minutes of play. The Mountain Hawks were within three of Yale with less than three minutes left in the game.

TONIGHT’S GAME

Lehigh won both meetings against Navy last season to pull within 49-32 in the all-time series, but the

Midshipmen won the first meeting this season, 64-58. Despite Navy winning three of the last five and four

of the last six, Lehigh has still won 16 of the last 21 all-time meetings heading into Wednesday’s game.

The teams first met in 1910-11, a 31-24 Navy victory. Lehigh’s first win was in 1925-26 by a 25-23 final.

LAST MEETING

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (1/2/20) – The Lehigh men’s

basketball team put together a 12-0 first-half run to go up double figures, but Navy responded with an

11-0 run and went on to down the Mountain Hawks, 64-58 in the Patriot League opener for both sides on Thursday evening. Junior Marques Wilson led Lehigh’s offense with season highs in points (12) and assists (5) while freshman Jake Betlow added a career-high 11 points

LAST TIME OUT

BETHLEHEM, Pa. (1/11/20) – The Lehigh men’s basketball team opened an early 15-2 lead and wouldn’t trail the rest of the way as the Mountain Hawks improved to 2-2 in Patriot League play with an impressive 82-73 win over American on Saturday evening in Stabler Arena. A balanced team effort saw

four Lehigh players score double-figure points, led

by 25 points and a career-high tying eight assists from senior Jordan Cohen. The win was Lehigh’s 10th straight over the Eagles dating back to 2016.

SCOUTING NAVY

Navy stands 8-7 overall, 2-2 in Patriot League play. The Midshipmen have alternated wins and losses over their last six games, most recently dropping a 70-63

final at home vs. Colgate. Navy’s league victories are

over Lehigh (at home) and Bucknell (on the road). Cam Davis leads the Mids in scoring, averaging 16.0 points per game. John Carter Jr. comes in at 12.4 while Greg Summers is averaging 9.8 and a team-high 6.9 rebounds per contest. Navy’s scoring offense (61.5) is last in the

Patriot League, but the Midshipmen are first in scoring

defense (59.3). Second in the league in scoring defense (Lafayette) has allowed nine more points per game than the Mids.

LAST GAME VS. NAVY NOTABLES

- Lehigh opened Patriot League play with a strong start at Navy, but tough finish. The Mountain Hawks used a 12-0 first-half run to take a double-digit lead, but the Midshipmen later responded with an 11-0 run. Lehigh scored just two points over the final 7:18 of the first half, but still held a 30-29 halftime advantage. Navy knocked down 3-pointers on its first two second-half possessions, the Mountain Hawks pulled even once but could never retake the lead as their three-game winning streak in Patriot League openers was snapped. - A pair of subs led the offense, with junior Marques Wilson scoring a season-high 12 points and freshman Jake Betlow adding a career-high 11 points. Both shot well, with Wilson hitting 4-of-7 from the field and Betlow knocking down 4-of-6 (including 3-of-5 from 3-point range).

- Sophomore Jeameril Wilson added 10 points and freshman Reed Fenton scored seven (all in the first half), helping offset tough offensive nights from the Mountain Hawks’ top two scorers - senior Jordan Cohen (five points on 1-of-11 shooting) and junior James Karnik (six points on 2-of-7 shooting). Karnik did tie a ca-reer high in steals (3) and blocks (3). Karnik has recorded three blocks in four different games this season after no games with three over his first two years.

- The Mountain Hawks continued their strong defensive efforts, holding Navy to 64 points and just 19 made field goals (tied for the second lowest total by a Mountain Hawks’ opponent this season).

- The Mountain Hawks’ ten 2-pointers allowed were a season best and lowest by a Lehigh op-ponent since Marist had just eight on Nov. 13, 2018. Lehigh finished with 10 steals, reaching double digits in that category for the third time this season.

FIRST LEAGUE WIN (JAN. 5)

- Lehigh came back from several deficits to beat Loyola - trailing by 12 in the first half and nine

with less than seven minutes remaining. The

Mountain Hawks began the first half on a 14-4

run, ended the half on a 16-5 run and ended the game on a 23-7 run for the 78-71 win.

- Freshman Reed Fenton was a catalyst, scoring a career-high 19 points on 7-of-11 shooting, includ-ing 3-of-4 from 3-point range. He knocked down a game-tying trey with 3:58 on the clock and later

added a clutch jumper in the final minute for a

six-point advantage.

- Three other Mountain Hawks reached

dou-ble-figure points. Junior James Karnik scored 18 points (to tie a season high) and grabbed seven re-bounds while classmate Marques Wilson scored a

AROUND THE

PATRIOT LEAGUE

season-high 16 points on 5-of-10 shooting and 3-of-7 from 3-point range. Senior Jordan Cohen had 14 points and six assists to reach exactly 300 assists in his career. Sophomore Jeameril Wilson scored seven points and dished a career-high tying four assists. Freshman Evan Taylor didn’t score, but set a career high with four assists. Sophomore Nic Lynch made his season debut and scored four

points, including a short jumper as the first half expired to even the score after 20 minutes of play.

- A big key for the Mountain Hawks was just 11 turnovers, their second lowest total all season. Lehigh’s freshmen combined for zero turnovers on the afternoon.

- Lehigh also continued its active defense, tallying eight steals (led by three from Cohen) and hold-ing the Greyhounds to 71 points, which was below their scorhold-ing average enterhold-ing the game. The Mountain Hawks contained the Patriot League’s leading scorer, holding Andrew Kostecka to 15 points, who was averaging 23.4 and coming off a career-high 37 points three days prior.

- The win snapped Lehigh’s eight-game losing streak, but most importantly, evened its Patriot League record.

VALIANT EFFORT AT AUBURN (DEC. 21)

- Lehigh gave No. 9/12 ranked and unbeaten Auburn a run for its money for the game’s first 32+ minutes

before the Tigers pulled away. The effort came against a program coming off a Final Four appearance, one of just four undefeated teams remaining in the nation (and the only one from a power conference). The

Mountain Hawks jumped out to a 20-13 lead in the first half, but Lehigh went scoreless over the final 7:17

of the stanza and Auburn went on a 14-0 run to take a 27-20 halftime advantage. Despite the drought, the Mountain Hawks pulled within four in the second and seven (48-41) with 7:56 remaining, but Auburn ended the game on a 26-10 run to put Lehigh away for good.

- In the end, Lehigh’s defense held the Tigers to their lowest point total for any half this season (27 in the

first) and third lowest total for any game (74).

- Senior Jordan Cohen led the offense with 18 points, which was a team high and tied for a game high, and six assists. Fourteen of those points came in the second half, including his 1,000th career point, becoming the 38th player in program history to reach the milestone.

- Freshman Evan Taylor impressed on the big stage, posting 13 points on 3-of-6 shooting and 6-of-7 from the free throw line. He also tied a career-high six rebounds.

- Junior James Karnik added 12 points and five boards. In the end, just five Mountain Hawks scored

on Saturday. Sophomore Jeameril Wilson added six points (all in the first half) while senior Ed Porter converted a first-half field goal.

IMPRESSIVE ROAD W AT ALBANY (NOV. 9)

- The Mountain Hawks picked up the first-ever road win for either side in the all-time series between

Lehigh and Albany.

- Lehigh used a 21-10 run to end the first half to take a 10-point halftime advantage, on the way to its first win of the season.

- The Mountain Hawks extended their lead to 17 midway through the first half. The Great Danes staged a comeback and pulled as close as three in the final seconds, but junior James Karnik knocked down a

big free throw with eight seconds remaining for a four-point lead, which proved to be the final as the

Mountain Hawks’ spoiled the season (and home) opener for the perennial America East contenders.

- Karnik filled the stat sheet with 16 points, five rebounds (to reach exactly 500 in his career), a steal and

three blocks. It marked Karnik’s second straight game with three blocks after never tallying more than

two in a game over his first two seasons.

- Senior Jordan Cohen led the offense with 17 points while sophomore Jeameril Wilson also reached

double figures for the first time this year, scoring 10. Junior Marques Wilson filled up the stat sheet with

eight points, seven rebounds and four assists while freshman Reed Fenton scored eight points as well, along with a rebound and two steals.

- Fenton’s point total was his high through two games. Same was true for classmates Jake Betlow (five

points) and Jakob Alamudun (six). Alamudun scored four first-half points, marking the first points of

his collegiate career. Senior Ed Porter also scored for the first time this season.

- It marked Lehigh’s first win against an America East team since Dec. 28, 2014, a 58-55 victory at UMBC. Lehigh has only played five current members of the America East (Albany, New Hampshire, Stony

Brook, Vermont and UMBC).

- It was also the third straight year Lehigh has won its first road game of the season (winning at Marist

in 2017-18 and at Monmouth in 2019-20).

COHEN, KARNIK, LIEB NAMED CAPTAINS

Heac coach Brett Reed announced the Mountain Hawks’ 2019-20 captains, which include seniors Jordan Cohen and Jack Lieb, and junior James Karnik.

Cohen is Lehigh’s leading returning scorer after averaging 13.6 points during his junior campaign. Among his many highlights was back-to-back games with 30+ points – at Boston University and home vs. Lafayette. A strong all-around student-athlete, Cohen was named third team All-Patriot League for his on-court success while also garnering Academic All-League for a second straight season.

Additional-ly, Cohen was named a Google Cloud Academic All-District honoree, the program’s first honoree since

2009. Karnik is the Mountain Hawks’ other returning starter from last season, averaging 9.3 points and

(4)

6.1 rebounds per contest. He was especially impressive in Patriot League play, averaging 11.4 points and 6.6 boards. The team’s Coaches Award winner, Karnik tied for eighth in the league in

rebounding and was fourth in field goal percentage (59.2, 113-of-191). Lieb has not seen action in

his Lehigh career due to injury, but has continued to make his presence felt as a veteran, so much so that his teammates helped make him a captain this season.

Lehigh Sports Communications • 641 Taylor Street, Bethlehem, PA • Phone 610-758-3174 National Ranks: 1st in 3pt FG%, 11th in FT%, 20th FG%

Patriot League Ranks: 1st in Scoring, FG%, 3pt FG%, FT%, FG% Defense,

Defensive Rebounds, 3pt Made Per Game (Tie); 2nd in Rebounding

Offense

- Lehigh’s 42.3 three-point percentage was a Patriot League record, break-ing the previous mark of 41.8 held by Holy Cross in 1990-91.

- Lance Tejada was named a candidate for the national Senior CLASS Award. The award focuses on four areas of excellence – community, classroom, character and competition. Tejada marked Lehigh’s eighth candidate in the past eleven years.

- Tejada tied a school-record with 10 made three-pointers at Holy Cross, tying Joe Knight and teammate Pat Andree.

- The Mountain Hawks featured one first team All-League honoree (Teja -da) and two third-team honorees (Jordan Cohen and Kyle Leufroy). Le-high has had three All-League honorees three times in the last four years. Prior to that, it happened just one other time in program history.

- Leufroy became the first player in program history to finish his career 8-0 vs. Lafayette. Leufroy went on to finish 8-0 against American as well. Iron -ically, the year before Leufroy arrived at Lehigh, Lafayette vs. American was the Patriot League Championship Game matchup.

- Lehigh finished 5-3 in February to extend its February mark to 27-5 (84.4

win percentage) since February of 2016. That mark since that point is fourth in the nation, only behind Gonzaga, Vermont and Kansas ahead of Wichita State.

- The Mountain Hawks reached 20 wins for the second time in the last

three years and fifth time in the last 10. Prior to that, the program had just

two 20-win seasons in program history.

- The program’s top three totals for Patriot League wins have come in the last three seasons. 1) 13 in 2015-16, t-2) 12 in 2016-17 and 2018-19. - The top two comeback wins in Coach Reed’s tenure as Lehigh head coach came in 2018-19: 19 at Army West Point and 18 at Holy Cross.

- Over the last four years, Lehigh has been first (2018-19), ninth (2017-18),

23rd (39.2) and 15th (2015-16) nationally in three-point percentage. - Lehigh’s 80.0 points per game was most in Coach Reed’s career. It also marked just the second time since the turn of the century that a Patriot League team averaged 80+ per game.

NONLEAGUE SUCCESS

Lehigh’s 7-4 nonleague record in 2018-19 was its best since 2012-13 when it

finished 10-3, one year before going 7-6 in 2013-14. The Mountain Hawks’

only losses last season came to three power-conference opponents (Miami, Kansas State and West Virginia) along with Ivy League power Yale. Among Lehigh’s victories was a win over another strong Ivy League squad Princeton, while also beating preseason NEC favorite Saint Francis (Pa.).

COACH REED PUTTING UP THE W’S

Head coach Brett Reed reached 100-career Patriot League (regular season) wins last season, becoming just the fourth coach in league history to reach that plateau. Below is the list. Reed tied Jeff Jones of American coach for fastest to reach 100 PL wins in terms of number of seasons (11th season for both Reed and Jones). However, for both Flannery and Jones, it took fewer games to reach 100.

Here is where Reed stands among Patriot League laurels for total wins and Patriot League victories. Reed’s 200th win came during a 78-72 home-open-ing win over Marist on Nov. 13, 2018. He tied Jones for third place with a home win over Saint Francis (Pa.) (Dec. 22) and overtook Jones with an 86-83 victory over Lafayette (Jan. 2) in Stabler Arena. With the thrilling overtime win at Lafayette on Jan. 30, Reed moved past Jones all alone into third place for Patriot League victories.

MCCOLLUM STARRING FOR TRAIL BLAZERS

- Former Lehigh standout C.J. McCollum is starring in his seventh NBA season with the Portland Trail Blazers.

- McCollum is currently averaging 21.7 points per game this season (be-fore games Jan . 13). That number is currently 21st in the NBA. McCollum averaged 20+ points per game each of the previous four years as one of the NBA’s most elite scorers.

2019-20 Season Highlights

- McCollum scored 20+ points in 10 straight games (Nov. 16 through Dec. 4). - McCollum scored 35 points on Oct. 27 at Dallas, knocking down 13-of-26

from the field and 8-of-8 from the free throw line.

- McCollum scored 32 points on Nov. 16 at San Antonio. He shot 13-of-25

from the field, including 5-of-10 from 3-point range.

2018-19 Season Highlights

- Among many highlights, McCollum scored 40 points against Milwaukee on Nov. 6, the most points ever scored by the Trail Blazers against the Bucks. - McCollum scored 35 points in just 28 minutes on Dec. 30 vs. Philadelphia,

Additional Notes

- During the 2017-18 season, McCollum was the talk of the NBA on Jan . 31, 2018 when he scored a career-high 50 points vs . Chicago . McCollum set a

Portland franchise record for points in a quarter with 28 in the first. It also

marked the most points any NBA player scored in a quarter this season. McCollum went on to tally 50 points on 18-of-25 shooting, including 6-of-9 from three-point range. It came in just 29 minutes as McCollum didn’t play the fourth quarter with the Trail Blazers leading comfortably. He became just the second NBA player in the shot clock era (along with Golden State’s Klay Thompson) to score 50+ points in less than 30 minutes.

- On June 27, 2013, McCollum became the first player in school history to be selected in the NBA Draft. He declared for the 2012 draft, but officially

withdrew from the NBA Draft on Monday, Apr. 9, 2012 to return to Lehigh for his senior season. McCollum went on to write a piece published on Sport-ing News’ website titled “Why I’m returning to Lehigh for my senior year,” citing earning his degree as one of the primary reasons.
