NCAA Tournament 2012, Lehigh Vs. Xavier Halftime Score: Mountain Hawks Up 37-33 At Intermission

Unlike Norfolk State, the Lehigh Mountain Hawks apparently aren't suffering any ill effects due to their major upset win over the 2-seed Duke Blue Devils on Friday. They lead the Xavier Musketeers 37-33 at halftime of Sunday's third round 2012 NCAA Tournament game, thanks to fast start from Mackey McKnight.

The sophomore guard already has 14 points on 6-for-9 through 20 minutes, allowing C.J. McCollum to take it easy after playing the hero against the Blue Devils. McCollum has just four points so far, after two fouls relegated him to the bench for a long stretch.

The Mountain Hawks led by as many as 15 points, but a late Xavier run brought the Musketeers to within four points at the final horn. Center Kenny Frease is a perfect 6-for-6 from the floor to lead the Musketeers with 12 points. Tu Holloway hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to keep Xavier within striking distance. He has six points so far.
