HAMILTON, N.Y. -- Tony Johnson scored 17 points to lead five Lafayette players in double figures as the Leopards held off Colgate 80-67 Wednesday night to win their fourth straight game and sweep the season series.
The Leopards (16-14, 9-4 Patriot League), who limited the Raiders to their lowest output of the season in a 69-40 win on Jan. 30, shot 59.3 percent in the first half (16 of 27) to lead 41-31.
The Raiders (11-19, 5-8) pulled within three points on four occasions in the second half, the last time at 66-63 with 4:53 left, but could get no closer.
Murphy Burnatowski, whose 24 points -- including five 3-pointers -- led the Raiders, was the only Colgate player to score more than six points.
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
Andrew White III will return to the Nebraska men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.
