    HAMILTON, N.Y. -- Mike Venezia matched his career high with 20 points to lead four players in double figures, and Colgate beat Lafayette 71-54 on Wednesday night for its third straight win.

    Yaw Gyawu had 16 points, Ben Johnson 13 and Anthony Hill 10 for Colgate (9-14, 5-5 Patriot League), which avenged a loss earlier this season to Lafayette (6-18, 2-8).

    Ryan Willen had 16 points, and Jim Mower added 13 for the Leopards, who have lost seven straight.

    After Lafayette took a 2-0 lead on a slashing drive by Marek Koltun 1:31 into the game, Venezia scored 10 points to key a 19-0 Colgate run that put the Raiders up 19-2 and in control.

    Lafayette didn't score again until Jeff Kari hit a jumper with 12:02 left in the first half, a span of 6:27 between baskets that put the Leopards in too deep a deficit to recover.
