LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) _ Gordon Mboya scored 19 points and J.R. Holden added 17 as Bucknell routed winless Lehigh 75-53 Saturday afternoon.

Dan Bowen scored 13 points and had six rebounds as Bucknell (6-7, 1-1) won for the first time in six games, since a December win in overtime over Princeton. They beat Lehigh for the 12th straight time.

Brett Eppehimer scored 19 points for Lehigh, but couldn’t stop the Mountain Hawks (0-14, 0-2) from losing their 17th straight game and 24th on the road, dating back to last season.

Bucknell opened a 15-3 lead following a Holden 3-pointer midway through the first half, and widened its lead to 16 on Holden’s layup with 5:35 left in the half. Lehigh stormed back with an 11-2 run capped by Jon Dean’s 3-pointer, pulling them to within 33-26.

But the Bison took a 39-27 lead into halftime and went on a 10-0 run early in the second half to put the game away.
