While the Lehigh women’s basketball team has been making waves on the road - first at Lafayette and then at Navy - the men have been doing the same at home. For the first time since the 2002-2003 season, the men are 6-0 at home. They also boast a 2-0 record in the Patriot League for the first time since 2012-13. It was an early 13-5 lead that began the game of runs on Sunday against Loyola. The now 0-2 Greyhounds were able to make their own run to tie the game up at 13, but then it was all Lehigh. Kyle Leufroy started the first big stretch as Lehigh would outscore Loyola 17-5. They would also use runs of 12-3 and 20-3 to pull away to the 89-72 victory.
The Greyhounds return to the Lehigh Valley tonight when they go up against Lafayette. The Leopards are 0-2 in the Patriot League, and are home for the first time. As for the Mountain Hawks, they will hit the road for a showdown against Holy Cross. The Crusaders are the only other Patriot League team who are undefeated at home (4-0). The Crusaders, who are currently 1-1 in the league, were swept by the Mountain Hawks last year.
