With C.J. McCollum sitting behind the bench instead of leading the Mountain Hawks on the court, Lehigh opened up the Patriot League season Saturday with a dominating 79-47 victory over the Holy Cross Crusaders at Stabler arena.
Complete team efforts, like this one, will be needed if Lehigh is to successfully defend its league championship without McCollum, who broke his foot a week ago.
Mackey McKnight led the way with 16 points while freshman Justin Goldsborough had a career-high 10 rebounds. The Mountain Hawks are 11-4 on the season and 1-0 in the Patriot League.
