Lehigh Stuns Duke, 75-70, in One of the Greatest Upsets in NCAA Tournament History

Lehigh’s first NCAA tournament win in school history may go down as one of the biggest upsets in NCAA tournament history – the Mountain Hawks from the Patriot League defeated mighty Duke.

Behind 30 points from star C.J. McCollum, 15th-seeded Lehigh stunned 2nd seeded Duke, 75-70. The Blue Devils were 12-point favorites and playing in Greensboro, which is less than an hour from their Durham campus.

Plagued by foul trouble and horrendous 3-point shooting – Seth Curry was 1-11, Austin Rivers was 2-9 behind the arc – the Blue Devils fell behind by seven late and were unable to claw back against the Patriot League champs.
