WORCESTER, Mass. -- Nick Lindner scored 17 points with six assists as Lafayette won its fifth in six games, rolling past Holy Cross 76-64 on Wednesday.

Lafayette led early in the first half and went into the break with a 39-34 advantage. The Leopards widened the gap to start the second with a 15-8 run -- helmed by Lindner hitting from inside the paint and from beyond the arc -- to lead 54-42 with 11:19 to play. Crusaders Anthony Thompson and Justin Burrell sank back-to-back 3-pointers late, sparking a 14-4 run that brought Holy Cross back to within eight with just under a minute to play.
