Worcester pod results

Lehigh 77, Colgate 60: Joe Knight hit 10 3-pointers and scored 45 points -- both new tournament records -- as Lehigh defeated Colgate.

A closer look at the Knight line: 15 of 19 from the field, 10 of 12 on 3-pointers, 11-for-12 in the second half.

Back in the his days at High Point, before he became an academic casualty and spent a year at a Texas junior college, Knight scored 40 against Vanderbilt. It is doubtful that his showing for Furniture U. was more impressive than the one he put on for his new team last night, though.

Colgate coach Emmett Davis told the Express-Times:
"I coached David Robinson (as an assistant at Navy) and saw him get 50 in a game (against Michigan in the 1987 NCAA tournament), and it wasn't as dominant a performance as this one."
Hidden behind Juco Joe's big night, a disturbing, pardon another pun, footnote in Gordie Jones' Morning Call story:
Hawks center Jason Mgebroff played just two minutes because of a bad foot.
Lehigh had best hope he gets better in a hurry. Without the 6-11 Mgebroff, the Hawks are ill-equipped to handle the HC big men. Earl Nurse is simply no match for Lufkin, Hurley, Hyland and Clifford, and it is doubtful Knight can put up those kinds of numbers against the league's best defense.
