Tough night all around

Butler 66, Lehigh 41 -- This paragraph from the AP story pretty much sums up Lehigh's night:
Lehigh turned the ball over 19 times and shot just 25 percent from the floor in the first half. It narrowly avoided the team's worst scoring effort in coach Billy Taylor's four years. Lehigh scored just 39 points in a loss to Holy Cross on Jan. 31, 2003, during Taylor's first season at the Mountain Hawks helm.
It would seem pretty obvious that Joe Knight's absence from the lineup is not because the Mountain Hawks are getting better production from the guys playing in his stead.
Box Score

No 20 Iowa 71, Colgate 53 -- Iowa was too much for Colgate, but the Raiders' Kendall Chones showed why he is getting so much preseason hype in Patriot League circles.

Just take a look at his box score line: 20 points on 9-for-15, tying two Hawkeyes for the game high with 8 rebounds.

AP wrap

Temple 69, Army 37 -- It was expected to be ugly and it was. Army scored just 12 points in the first half. Hard as it might be to believe, that is not Army's record for futility -- although their media guide does not list the mark for fewest points in a half, we know back in 2004 they scored only 9 in the first half of a loss at Bucknell. The Black Knights shot just 12-for-42 from the field on the game, and turned the ball over 21 times. John Chaney stays perfect against the Patriot League and perfect in NIT home games, picking up his career win No. 500 in the process.
