Game 4
Lafayette vs. UMBC
November 20, 2007
 
In their second overtime win of the season, the Lafayette men pulled off a stunning 87-84 victory over UMBC that featured five Leopards scoring in double figures. UMBC came out strong in the first half, pushing the lead to as much as 11 before the break. In the second half, the Retrievers continued to hold the lead despite incessant Lafayette pressure, as the Leopards pulled to within two, eight separate times. With 49 seconds remaining in regulation, Jared Mintz grabbed an offensive board and fed Andrew Brown for a jumper to tie the game at 74-74. Marek Colton then blocked a Ray Barbosa lay-up attempt at the other end, and grabbed the board to set up a potential game winner for the Leopards. A Lafayette offensive foul turned the ball over, and the game was sent to overtime. In the extra period, Jeff Kari hit the final four free throws to send the Leopards to the 87-84 win. Matt Betley recorded his first double-double of the season with 13 points and 11 boards, and was joined in double figures by Brown (15), Everest Schmidt (14), Kari (11) and Michael Gruner (10).
