The Lehigh men's basketball team suffered a 64-60 upset loss at Colgate on Saturday in Hamilton, New York.

Colgate raced out to an early 22-4 lead, and pushed its lead to as many as 21 points in the second half.

The Mountain Hawks staged a furious rally, using an 18-0 run to erase the lead and tie things up at 56-56 late in the game.


But the Raiders made their free throws down the stretch to secure the win.

Lehigh drops to 8-2 in the Patriot League, but stays tied with Bucknell for the league lead after the Bison lost at Lafayette.

Colgate is now 4-6 in the conference.

Anthony D'Orazio had a career-high 17 points for the Mountain Hawks.  Mackey McKnight also had 17.

Lehigh and Bucknell will face each Monday night at Stabler Arena with the outright Patriot League lead on the line.
