Justin Jaworski added 12 points and six assists and Kyle Stout scored 11 for the Leopards (6-16, 3-8 Patriot League). Stout and Petrie both made three 3-pointers and Lafayette hit on 10 of 23 from beyond the arc.
Tyler Scanlon continued his recent upswing, scoring 28 points with four 3-pointers and seven rebounds for the Terriers (11-13, 4-7). Scanlon, who averages 13.2 points and 5.4 rebounds per game, had his first two career double-doubles last week, averaging 18.5 points and 10.5 rebounds in the two games.
