WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) C.J. McCollum scored 26 points and fed John Adams for a 3-pointer with 11 seconds left in overtime Saturday as Lehigh outlasted Army 74-72 in Patriot League play.

McCollum (11 for 18 from the floor) drove the lane with Army leading 72-71 and found Adams open for the decisive trey. Army (12-17, 5-9) had a chance to tie it with 3 seconds left, but freshman Maxwell Lenox missed the first of two foul shots. He intentionally missed the second, but Lehigh's Gabe Knutson (17 points) grabbed the rebound.

In a tight game throughout, Army's Ella Ellis - who, like Julian Simmons, scored 14 points - made two foul shots with 0:32 left in regulation to tie it 64-all. In overtime, the score tied 69-69, Adams scored on a dunk for Lehigh (23-7, 11-3). Josh Herbeck's 3-pointer put Army ahead 72-71 with 2:13 left. It stayed that way until Adams' game-winner.
