BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Bob Krizansky and Dozie Mbonu each scored 21 points to lead Lehigh over Towson State, 85-83, last night.

Lehigh's Jay Hipps made two foul shots with seven seconds left to ice the game.

The Tigers' Lewis Waller hit a driving layup at the buzzer, but Towson failed to match its heroics of Friday, when Devin Boyd's last-second three pointer beat Bucknell, 85-84.

Boyd led Towson with 21 points. Chuck Lightening added 20 and Terrance Jacobs 16.

Towson (5-6) held the lead until 4 minutes, 11 seconds remained in the second half, when Krizansky hit two free throws to put Lehigh (6-5) ahead, 74-73. The lead then changed hands eight times before Chuck Penn's jumper with 33 seconds remaining put the Engineers ahead for good.
