    HAMILTON, N.Y. -- CJ McCollum and Michael Ojo scored 22 points apiece, and Zahir Carrington added 12 points and 14 rebounds as Lehigh turned back an upset bid by Colgate 91-81 on Wednesday night.

    The Mountain Hawks (17-9, 8-3 Patriot League) maintained their one-game conference lead over Navy and Bucknell after trailing 49-40 at halftime.

    Five steals in the opening 5:09 of the second half helped Lehigh turn the game around and go on top 67-58 with 10:45 remaining. But the Raiders (8-17, 4-7), who had won their last two games by a point each, came back with a 13-3 run, taking a 71-70 lead on Kyle Roemer's layup with 6:29 left.

    A 3-pointer by Ojo at the 5:48 mark put Lehigh back in the lead to stay, and a dunk by Carrington made it 75-71 with 5:17 left. Lehigh shot 65.4 percent (17-for-26) in the second half.

    Roemer scored 21 points for the Raiders, and Gyawu and Ben Jonson scored 13 each.
