BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP)—Frankie Dobbs’ layup with two seconds left gave Bryant a thrilling 80-79 victory over Lehigh Saturday night.

The Bulldogs (7-4) overcame a spectacular performance by C.J. McCollum, who led Lehigh (9-3) with 34 points. He made 9 of 18 shots from the floor—6 of 10 from 3-point range—and 10 of 11 free throws.

But McCollum, after making a late steal, committed a turnover with seven seconds left. Bryant called timeout and Dobbs, who had 17 points, scored the game-winner.

Mackey McKnight (12 points) had given Lehigh its last lead at 79-78 with 1:04 left. Holden Greiner recorded a 16-point, 10-rebound double-double for the Mountain Hawks.

Bryant’s Alex Francis had a double-double with 21 points and 14 rebounds. Dyami Starks added 20 points and Joe O’Shea 15.

Bryant was 28 of 60 from the field to Lehigh’s 25 of 54. The Bulldogs made 12 treys, Lehigh 11.
