    WASHINGTON -- Zahir Carrington scored 20 points to lead Lehigh in a 77-65 win over American on Saturday.

    The Mountain Hawks (15-8, 6-2 Patriot League), who have won five of their last six, saw four players score in double figures. CJ McCollum finished with 19 points and a career-high 13 rebounds, Marquis Hall scored 18 points and Gabe Knutson had 10.

    After a 3-pointer from American's Joe Hill cut Lehigh's lead to 65-60, the Mountain Hawks responded with an 8-0 run to take a 73-60 advantage with 1:13 remaining.

    Vlad Moldoveanu paced the Eagles (7-16, 4-4) with 24 points. American had a three-game winning streak snapped.

    Lehigh outrebounded American 35-30, and scored 15 points off of the Eagles' 14 turnovers.

    More than half of American's field goal attempts were 3-pointers, but they shot only 26.5 percent from beyond the arc (9-for-34).

    Lehigh shot 50 percent from 3-point range (6-for-12).
