WORCESTER, Mass. -- Mackey McKnight made a season-high 11 free throws in 12 attempts and scored 22 points to help Lehigh kick off the second half of its Patriot League schedule with a 68-61 win over Holy Cross Saturday night.

McKnight was also 3-of-7 shooting from 3-point range for the Mountain Hawks (16-5, 7-1), who won their ninth straight conference road game.

Gabe Knutson added 14 points, Holden Greiner 13 and B.J. Bailey 10 for Lehigh, which got all of its points from its five starters.

Dave Dudzinski had 13 points and Malcolm Miller 10 for the Crusaders (10-13, 2-6).

Knutson capped Lehigh's 14-2, first-half run with consecutive baskets for a 19-10 lead with 11:27 until halftime. The Mountain Hawks led 33-27 at the break.

Justin Burrell's jumper pulled Holy Cross within 53-51 with 5:52 left, but then the Crusaders went nearly 4 minutes scoreless while Holy Cross scored six points.
