FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- C.J. McCollum scored 26 points, becoming the Patriot League's all-time career scoring leader, as Lehigh defeated Sacred Heart 91-77 in a nonconference game Sunday.
McCollum scored 16 of his points in the first half, when the Mountain Hawks (4-2) took a 49-33 lead. His career total is now 2,228, surpassing the 2,224 by Rob Feaster of Holy Cross from 1991-95.
Lehigh never trailed, taking the lead for good less than a minute into the game on a 3-pointer by McCollum. He made 4 of 6 3-pointers in the first half, as the Mountain Hawks shot 57.6 percent (19 of 33) in the half, including 8 of 15 on 3-pointers.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
