Dec. 16, 2013
Lafayette takes on Immaculata looking to win its fourth consecutive game on Tuesday evening. The Leopards have victories in their last three contests against Penn, Wagner and Sacred Heart.
Seth Hinrichs is the second leading scorer in the Patriot League at 20.4 points per game and has scored 20 points in four games this season. His 20.4 ppg ranks 30th in the NCAA.
Lafayette is shooting 124-of-154 (80.5 percent) at the free throw line, which leads the Patriot League and is second in the nation behind Providence (80.7%). Bryce Scott leads the conference in free throw shooting at 95.5 percent (21-22) and is seventh in the nation.
Nick Lindner scored a career-high 24 points in the win at Sacred Heart. His 24 points were the most by a Lafayette freshman under Fran O’Hanlon and the most since Brian Ehlers ’00 scored 23 against Navy on March 2, 1997. Lindner has been named Patriot League Rookie of the Week twice this season.
Seth Hinrichs needs seven three-pointers to move into the top-10 all-time at Lafayette. He is seven shy of Craig Kowalda ’96, who occupies 10th on the career list.
Seth Hinrichs’ 46.1 percent (140-of-303) career three-point percentage is the highest in Patriot League history.
Dan Trist has scored in double figures in his last six games, despite missing the Penn game with a shoulder injury. Trist is third on the team with 14.1 points per night.
Lafayette has used three different starting lineups this season and the combination of Nick Lindner, Bryce Scott, Seth Hinrichs, Alan Flannigan and Dan Trist on six occasions.
