BETHLEHEM, Penn. (AP) Austin Price hit four 3-pointers and finished with a career-high 28 points to help Lehigh beat Colgate 79-70 Wednesday night.

Price made 10 of 15 field goals, grabbed eight rebounds and had three steals.

Jesse Chuku added 13 points, including three 3-pointers, and Tim Kempton scored 11 for Lehigh (6-13, 4-4 Patriot League), which hit 10 3-pointers.

Back-to-back 3-pointers by Austin Tillotson and Jordan Swoopshire pulled Colgate (10-10, 6-3) within three midway through the second half, but Price answered with a pair of 3s to start a 10-0 run that made it 63-50 with 7:14 left and the Raiders trailed by at least seven the rest of the way.

Tom Rivard scored 19 and Tillotson 18 to lead Colgate.
