Mighty strange

One day after an impressive showing in a two-point loss to Northwestern of the Big Ten, Lehigh was less than impressive in squeaking past MEAC middle-of-the packer Coppin State.

The Mountain Hawks needed a Jose Olivero three-pointer with 0.2 on the clock to pull out a 65-64 win.

For the second time in as many games, the box score shows Jason Mgebroff did not start and Joe Knight did not play. Mgebroff saw only 13 minutes of action, scoring 4 points and grabbing 3 rebounds. Senior Mike Fischman, who has started at center in both of Lehigh's games, scored 10 points, despite shooting 1 for 7 from the field, and had 6 boards in 26 minutes of action.

Both Knight and Mgebroff were listed as likely starters in the notes for the Lehigh game. Both were listed as reserves for this one. But nothing in the notes or the wire stories gives any hint as to why Knight, the Hawks' leading returning scorer, has not played.
