Darrell Lampley's career-high 37 points not enough for Eastern Michigan in loss at Colgate
A career night by Darrell Lampley wasn't enough for the Eastern Michigan basketball team against Colgate.
The senior guard scored 37 points, including a late scoring flurry that got the Eagles back in the game before they dropped a 74-70 decision at Cotterell Court in Hamilton, N.Y.
Senior Mike Venezia led Colgate with 19 points and Pat Moore added 14. The Raiders shot 80 percent from the free throw line, including nine in the closing minutes to remain perfect at home this season.
Lampley scored 15 of his points in the final eight minutes of play, after Colgate (3-4) had taken a 57-44 lead -- the largest by either team. His layup brought the Eagles (4-4) within 73-70 with 14 seconds left. Colgate's Mitch Rolls split a pair of free throws with 8 seconds left to seal the win.
Lampley made 12 of 26 shots in the game and was 11 of 11 at the free-throw line, but he was just 2 of 10 from 3-point range. (Boxscore)
