Opening Tip:

Sunday’s game is the third of four (1-1) for Lafayette as part of the 2012 Barclays Center Classic.

Lafayette dropped to 1-2 after a 101-49 loss at defending National Champion Kentucky on Friday night.

Sophomore forward Dan Trist (23.5 ppg) missed Friday’s game against UK after injuring his left ankle in the team’s morning shoot around. He was coming off a career-high 30 point effort against LIU-Brooklyn.

Lafayette is 1-0 all-time against current Ohio Valley Conference members after defeating Tennessee State 71-59 on Dec. 29, 1997.

The all-time winningest coach in Lafayette and Patriot League history and longest-tenured coach in the conference, Fran O’Hanlon (Villanova, ’70) is in his 18th season as the Leopards’ head coach. O’Hanlon coached his 500th career game against St. Francis (N.Y.) to open the season.

With the victory at Colgate (1/25/12), head coach Fran O’Hanlon became the Patriot League’s all- time winningest coach with 235 career wins. O’Hanlon now holds the Patriot League record for wins in addition to owning the overall (502) and league (228) games coached marks.

Fran O’Hanlon’s 2012-13 squad is one of 10 NCAA Division I men’s basketball teams with multiple Australian-born teammates. Sophomore Dan Trist (Sydney) and freshman Nathaniel Musters (Padstow) each hail from Australia.

Lafayette was picked to finish fourth in the Patriot League’s Preseason Poll behind Lehigh, Bucknell and American. Holy Cross was also chosen to finish fourth, while Army, Colgate and Navy rounded out the list.

Lafayette’s two seniors, Tony Johnson and Levi Giese, will serve as team captains in 2012-13.
