NCAA Tournament 2012, Xavier Vs. Lehigh: Mountain Hawks Lead 37-33 At Half

The Lehigh Mountain Hawks are attempting to make history. Friday night they became just the sixth No. 15 seed to advance in the NCAA Tournament, and tonight they are halfway toward becoming the first No. 15 seed to reach the Sweet 16. Coppin State came within a point of the Sweet 16 in 1997, but Lehigh is doing even better this year, leading the Xavier Musketeers 37-33 at halftime.

Mackey McKnight has scored 14 points for Lehigh as they attempt to pull off their second straight upset in the 2012 NCAA Tournament. Kenny Frease has 12 points for the Musketeers, but overall Xavier has shot only 46% from the field and has six turnovers.

Lehigh led by as many as 15, but Xavier closed the half on a 15-2 run.
