BALTIMORE (AP) — Andre Walker scored 19 points, including the game winning layup with 27 seconds left, and Loyola (Md) came back in the final three minutes to beat Lehigh 62-60 on Wednesday night.
Walker finished 7 of 16 from the field and added nine rebounds and six assists.
Lehigh (12-10, 6-5 Patriot League) held a slim 59-56 lead with 2:13 to play, when back-to-back buckets by Cam Gregory re-established a 60-59 Loyola lead with 1:10 left. A Kahron Ross free throw for the Mountain Hawks tied it at 60, setting up Walker’s layup to win it.
Lehigh had two chances to either tie it or win it, but Ross missed a jumper and layup on consecutive possessions.
Gregory scored 15 points with eight boards and Jarred Jones added 14 points for the Greyhounds (12-10, 6-5), who have won three straight.
Kyle Leufroy scored 17 points and Jordan Cohen added 14 to lead Lehigh.
