With 69 goals and 79 points in three years, senior attackman Adam Johnston has been a consistent scoring threat for Lehigh. Johnston, a Street native and St. Paul's graduate, has scored 27 goals in each of his last two seasons since becoming a full-time starter, and Mountain Hawks coach Kevin Cassese said the team has relied on Johnston's versatility. “Adam's been a four-year starter for us, he's played a variety of roles,” Cassese said Wednesday during a conference call organized by the Patriot League.

With Friday night's 9-4 convincing victory over Patriot League rival Navy, No. 8 Lehigh extended its program-record winning streak to nine and continued to emerge as perhaps the most dangerous team an opponent from one of the power conference would like to avoid in the NCAA Tournament. The Mountain Hawks (10-2 overall and 3-0 in the Patriot League) also traded their identity as a hunter for the hunted, and it's an adjustment that the players are getting accustomed to. “It's definitely taken some time getting used to being in that situation, but it's a situation that I've always wanted to be in,” junior midfielder Brian Hess said two days before the game against the Midshipmen.

Kelly Peterson scored 16 points, including 11 in the second half, to help guide the Lehigh women's basketball team past visiting Loyola, 70-60, on Monday. Although the Greyhounds (3-4) shot 18-for-21 from the free-throw line, they could not overcome their struggles from the field (18-for-58). Guard Miriam McKenzie led Loyola with 15 points. Lehigh (4-6) started fast, jumping out to a 16-4 lead, and held a 35-23 lead at the half. The slow start was too much for the Greyhounds, who never led and who never got within single digits in the second half.

No suspense remains for Navy's hopes of qualifying for its first NCAA tournament since 2009. The team must win three games in the Patriot League tournament, beginning with Tuesday's quarterfinal at Lehigh. With a 4-8 record, the Midshipmen have no shot at an at-large bid, but coach Rick Sowell insisted that there is no talk about anything beyond Tuesday's game. “Right now, it's Lehigh,” he said Monday afternoon. “You win, you advance. You lose, you go home. At this point, any conversation about winning three games, that just hasn't come up. That's not our focus at this point in time.

It would probably be fair to say that Navy would have preferred a route other than backing into the Patriot League tournament, as it did on Saturday. The team suffered a 14-7 loss to archrival Army, but seized the sixth and final spot in the conference tournament courtesy of Bucknell's 13-1 rout of Lafayette and Colgate's 11-9 decision over Holy Cross. Still, the Midshipmen (4-7 overall and 3-5 in the league) are in the tournament and would love nothing more than to grab a little momentum heading into Tuesday's quarterfinal against Lehigh (10-4, 5-2)

"Christian Walsh came down and made a nice move," Wolf said. "We've been playing together for a long time and have great chemistry, and I knew he was going to throw it to me and set a pick. I attacked the ball, got to five-on-five, inside roll and stuck it, fortunately. " The Blue Devils improved to 6-2 overall and 1-1 in the Atlantic Coast Conference while the Tar Heels fell to 5-2, 0-2.
