BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Levi Giese scored 17 points and Seth Hinrichs posted a double-double to lead Lafayette to a 78-57 victory over archrival Lehigh on Sunday, handing the Mountain Hawks their first Patriot League loss this season and snapping their five-game winning streak.

Hinrichs finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds for the Leopards (10-12, 3-2), who ended a five-game skid in the series, while Dan Trist had 14 points and Tony Johnson and Joey Ptasinski also scored 13 each.

Tied at 11, Lafayette used a 13-2 spurt to pull away.

After Gabe Knutson's jumper closed the gap to six to open the second half, the Leopards rattled off six straight points, four by Trist, ending the threat.

B.J. Bailey, Mackey McKnight and Knutson scored 12 apiece to lead Lehigh (14-5, 4-1), which had not lost since leading scorer C.J. McCollum broke his foot in a game against Virginia Commonwealth on Jan. 5.
