HAMILTON, N.Y. (AP) — Matt Klinewski scored 18 points and grabbed eight rebounds, Eric Stafford added 15 points, and Lafayette held on for a 73-69 win over Colgate in the regular season finale for both teams on Saturday.

Lafayette (9-20, 5-13 Patriot) got its biggest lead of the second half on Paulius Zalys' free throw with 2:42 left to put the Leopards in front 68-60. Will Rayman hit a 3 for Colgate with 1:01 to play, and Jordan Swopshire hit 2 of 3 free throws to cap a 7-1 run and cut it to 69-67 with 18 seconds left.

Colgate stole the ensuing inbound pass, but upon review the refs gave possession to Lafayette, and Nick Lindner and Zalys combined to make 4 of 4 from the free-throw line in the final 13 seconds.

Sean O'Brien made four 3s for the Raiders (10-21, 9-10), scoring 18 points and matching a career high with eight assists. Tom Rivard finished with 17 points on 7-of-8 shooting.
