BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) - Freshman Reed Fenton scored a career-high 19 points, James Karnik added 18 points and seven rebounds and Lehigh rallied late to beat Loyola-Maryland 78-71 on Sunday.

Brent Holcombe’s three-point play with 7:24 remaining in the game gave Loyola-Maryland a 64-55 lead. But Jordan Cohen hit a jumper, Fenton buried a 3-pointer and Cohen added a 3 in a quick 8-0 run that pulled the Mountain Hawks (10-5, 2-0 Patriot League) within 64-63 with 5:31 left.

An Andrew Kostecka jumper gave the Greyhounds (9-6, 1-1) a 69-66 lead, but Jeameril Wilson nailed a 3, Karnik scored a go-ahead layup and Lehigh closed the game on a 9-2 run to pull out the win.

Marques Wilson finished with 16 points off the Lehigh bench, while Cohen pitched in with 14 points and six assists.
