    Knitter's offensive rebound and put-back gave Lafayette a one-point lead and Columbia's Dragutin Kravic missed a 3-pointer with four seconds remaining to seal the win for the Leopards.

    Marcus Harley and Bilal Abdullah also scored 11 points each for Lafayette (4-7). Kravic led Columbia (7-4) with 15 points.

    Columbia took a 36-34 lead at the half, and the game was close right up to the final seconds.
