The Patriot League tournament title chances for the American Eagles went up in smoke on Saturday afternoon, going down to Lehigh 85-66. American trailed Lehigh by just six points at the half, but after halftime the Mountain Hawks soured past the Eagles and ran them out of the gym to put up 51 points in the second half.
American goes down in their semifinal matchup, as Lehigh makes its way to the finals. Lehigh will take on the winner of Lafayette and Bucknell, who play later Saturday afternoon. American entered their match up with Lehigh today on a two-game winning streak, but just couldn't do enough on offense to win.
