STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. (AP)
The Leopards (2-5) overcame an early 12-9 deficit and surged ahead with a 19-2 run fueled by two Seth Hinrichs 3-pointers as well as four free throws and a layup by Lindner.
Wagner (4-5) fought back early in the second half and closed within four on a three-point play by Kenneth Ortiz, but Lafayette answered with a 14-5 run to make the score 54-41.
The Seahawks couldn't pull closer than six as Lafayette drained late 11 free throws to hold the lead.
Lindner missed just one of his 14 attempts from the foul line and Hinrichs and Dan Trist each scored 12 points for the Leopards.
