Trist lifts Lafayette over Sacred Heart 82-81
EASTON, Pa. (AP) Dan Trist missed his first free throw with the game tied and 0.4 seconds left but made the second and Lafayette beat Sacred Heart 82-81 on Monday night.
Joey Ptasinski forced a 3 for Lafayette (6-2) with time running down but missed. Trist grabbed the rebound and Sacred Heart (4-4) fouled him on the putback with no time left.
