    EASTON, Pa. -- Marquis Hall scored 18 points and Zahir Carrington hit three of four free throw shots in the final minutes as Lehigh held off a Lafayette rally for a 60-57 victory Saturday.

    Hall became the Mountain Hawks' 28th 1,000-point scorer, while Carrington finished with 13 points and Rob Keefer added 10 for Lehigh (12-7, 2-3 Patriot League).

    Jeff Kari scored 19 points to lead Lafayette (6-13, 2-3) while Jared Mintz had 16 and Ryan Willen added 11 points and 10 rebounds.

    Lehigh led by as many as 16 points in the first half and held a 32-28 advantage at the break. The Mountain Hawks were ahead 46-34 with 12 minutes left, but Lafayette scored 11 unanswered points, five of them by Kari, to make it a one-point game.

    Mintz tied the score at 55 with 2:35 remaining, but Carrington went 3-for-4 from the line over a 34-second span to give Lehigh at 58-55 lead with 1:03 on the clock.
