Lehigh's women are back at home Thursday to try to get to 5-5 on their season, largely because of the play of Kerry Kinek.

The Lehigh women get back to work Thursday night.   They've had a couple of weeks with no games, but they certainly haven't been weeks off, they've been playing each other on the practice floor, and battling daily. Tomorrow they'll host Sacred Heart. Lehigh is 4-5 on the season so far, but you have to wonder where they'd be without Allentown Central Catholic grad Kerry Kinek in their lineup.  The Lehigh freshman is putting up numbers like she did in high school, she's leading the Mountain Hawks in scoring and rebounding in her first 9 games. a fact that doesn't surprise her head coach.
