WORCESTER, Mass. -- Tony Johnson scored 20 points, hitting a 3-pointer with 4 seconds left to complete Lafayette's comeback from a 13-point deficit, as the Leopards edged hot-shooting Holy Cross 79-76 Wednesday night.
Lafayette (14-14, 7-4 Patriot League), which also defeated the Crusaders 63-53 on Jan. 23, trailed 60-47.
After the Leopards tied it at 67, Holy Cross, which shot 67.4 percent for the game (29 of 43), answered with a 9-3 run. Johnson converted a three-point play, then Seth Hinrichs hit a 3-pointer, assisted by Johnson, to knot it 76-76 with 53 seconds left.
Mike Krzyzewski says he has good reason to be excited for next season thanks to a combination of Duke's incoming freshmen and a core of experienced upperclassmen.
Georgia guard Juwan Parker has been awarded a medical redshirt, leaving him with two years of eligibility, after missing the 2015-16 season with a partially torn Achilles tendon.
Forward Trevon Bluiett has withdrawn from consideration from the NBA draft and will return to Xavier for his junior season.
