BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- C.J. McCollum scored 35 points to lead Lehigh to an 82-67 victory over Fairfield on Monday night.

Keith Matthews scored 17 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to pace Fairfield.

McCollumn made 12 of 21 shots, including 5 of 7 from 3-point range, coming up one point shy of the 36 he scored in a season-opening loss to Baylor for the Mountain Hawks (2-2).

The senior guard scored 21 of his points in the first half, including three consecutive 3-pointers that enabled Lehigh to turn an early 10-7 lead by the Stags (2-2) into a 16-10 Mountain Hawks advantage.

Lehigh led 40-30 at the half and never by fewer than nine after that.

Gabe Knutson added 17 points and Holden Greiner 11 rebounds for Lehigh, which is hosting a consolation bracket of the NIT Season Tip-Off. Mackey McKnight added seven assists.

Fairfield plays Fordham Tuesday night at 6.
