Jury still out on Knight
Andre Williams puts aside Joe Knight's spotty non-conference performance and generally lackluster numbers to argue he is the second coming of Austen Rowland in his column in today's Morning Call. Says Williams:
The 6-1 transfer from High Point University has turned into a clutch late-game performer, hitting the game-winning shot with 25.4 seconds left in a 56-53 win over American, which has sparked Lehigh's 3-0 start in league play.We will withhold adoration until he does it for more than three games. Right now, to us, though, Knight is still a 37-percent shooter.
Knight followed the AU high with an 11-point, six-assist, five-rebound, three-steal performance in a 63-55 win over Lafayette, which included several key late-game plays on both ends of the court.
He also had 25 points in helping the Hawks rebound after blowing a 16-point second-half lead and beating Navy 72-67 in Annapolis on Saturday.
