the Leopards entered the half with a 31-19 advantage thanks to a                      on a Tim Bieg three-pointer. Brian Ehlers led Lafayette with 12              them to the locker room with Lafayette up 23-22. Both teams shot
61.1 percent first-half shooting percentage. Rob Worthington, who                     first-half points. The Leopards didn’t seem to have an answer for            7-for-24 (.292) in the first stanza, with the Leopards only advan-
turned in a solid first half with six points and two rebounds, earned                 VU center Malik Allen who helped the Wildcats tie the game at 32             tage on one extra three-pointer. The game remained tight until 14
the second half start and finished with career highs in points (10)                   to end the first half. Villanova took over the momentum at the               minutes remaining in the second half, when a 31-30 Leopard lead

defense came up huge in the final two minutes with Tim Bieg and                       Ehlers’ free throws. The FT’s followed Mick Kuberka’s trey on                layups. Perhaps the only thing in doubt in the after the run was
Tyson Whitfield each recording a steal. Brian Ehlers extended                         the previous possession. Villanova’s Allen again proved the Leop-            Ehlers’ 44-game double-digit scoring streak. He only had four

ards in double digits with game-high of 17 points and six rebounds.                   VU up 72-68. Lafayette battled back with 15.6 seconds remaining              ance of the streak. The Leopards were led in scoring by Tyson

           PENNSYLVANIA 80, LAFAYETTE 76
13          JAN. 11, 2000 — THE PALESTRA
A jumper by Penn’s Michael Jordan sealed Lafayette’s fate, as his
buzzer-beater with 0.6 seconds left led the Quakers to an 80-76
win. Jordan’s clutch shot came with a tie game (76-76) after the
Leopards were whistled for a travelling violation on the previous
possession. Trailing 25-16 with 6:26 left in the first half, Brian
Ehlers initiated a one-man rally with a fast-break dunk, a jumper
and a three to bring LC within three at 3:41. Penn would rally, how-
ever, closing the half with a buzzer-beating dunk by Ugonna
Onyekwe to lead 40-33. Ehlers scored 13 points in the first half.
Tim Bieg was the go-to player in the second half. He nailed two
three’s and completed a three-point play as LC opened the half with
a 12-1 run to go up 45-40 at 16:35. Minutes later, with the Leopards
trailing, Brian Burke stole a pass and converted a three-point play
to give Lafayette a 62-57 lead at 9:34. Penn responded, rattling off
six points to take a one-point lead at 7:33. Jordan put Penn up 70-64
with a three at 5:37. Stefan Ciosici hit a field goal and two free
throws to make it 71-68 at 2:22. After Ciosici missed a free throw,
Rob Worthington tipped the rebound out to Ehlers who hit a three
to tie it at 71-71 with 2:08. The Leopards and the Quakers exchanged
two-pointers before Burke hit a three-pointer at 42.7 to give Lafayette
a 76-74 lead with 28.2 left. Then Penn’s Jordan hit a baseline jumper
to tie the game at 76 and ended the suspense, with his game-win-
ning bucket that left him with a game-high 24 points. Ehlers led
Lafayette with a season-high 23 points.
