STARKVILLE, Miss. Antoine Vermette Gear . -- Kahron Ross and Kyle Leufroy each had 18 points to lead six Lehigh players in double figures in an 87-73 win over Mississippi State on Friday night.The Mountain Hawks shot 52 percent from the field and made 11 of 26 three-pointers. Austin Price had 14 points, Tim Kempton scored 13 and Matt Holba and Pat Andree each had 11 points for the Mountain Hawks.I was worried about thus game because these guys are really good, said Mississippi State head coach Ben Howland. They picked us apart with their shooting and execution. We worked all week on doubling the post, which is something we have to do.They hurt us in transition and they did about what theyve been doing from the field. They really cut us to shreds and we attacked their zone poorly.I.J. Ready scored 19 of his 20 points in the second half for Mississippi State. Tyson Carter had 16 points for the Bulldogs (3-2) while Mario Kegler scored 12 with nine rebounds. Lamar Peters and Aric Holman added 11 and 10 points, respectively.Lehigh (2-2) used a 13-1 run midway through the first half to break it open. Mississippi State went 8:53 without a field goal during that stretch and trailed 31-20 with 2:28 left before Lehigh took a 38-29 lead at halftime.Normally we would like to establish ourselves in man-to-man defense, said Lehigh head coach Brett Reed. But Mississippi State forced us to go zone and we also had Tim Kempton in foul trouble. Fortunately, we were able to hold them to one shot we were active enough to get them out of a rhythm, offensively.Mississippi State shot 41.3 percent for the game and made 7 of 22 from beyond the arc.The Mountain Hawks led by as many as 21 in the second half.Lehigh won the battle of the boards 39-32 with Holba grabbing eight boards.Lehigh outscored Mississippi State 38-28 in the paint and held a 13-4 advantage in bench scoring.BIG PICTUREMississippi State: Friday marked Mississippi States first game without leading-scorer Quinndary Weatherspoon. Earlier in the week it was discovered that Weatherspoon suffered torn ligaments in his left wrist and he will have season-ending surgery. In his place, freshman Lamar Peters made his first collegiate, scoring 11 on 4-of-10 shooting.Lehigh: After two straight losses to open the season, including a three-point loss at No. 10 Xavier, the Mountain Hawks have won two in a row.UP NEXTMississippi State: The Bulldogs continue a season-long, five-game home stand on Monday against Northwestern (La.) State.Lehigh: The Mountain Hawks continued their trend of tough, road challenges at Arkansas State on Sunday. Adam Henrique Gear . -- Charline Labonte couldnt have asked for a better homecoming. Joseph Blandisi Gear . Andrew Luck lost his favourite target and the Indianapolis locker room lost one of its most revered leaders when Reggie Wayne was diagnosed Monday with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee that will cost him the rest of the season. http://www.anaheimducksgear.com/jaycob-megna-gear/ . -- Aldon Smith believes he is on the path to being sober for good. CHICAGO -- It wasnt the 1967 Ice Bowl between Green Bay and the Dallas Cowboys, or even the coldest game ever played at Soldier Field.Yet, both the Chicago Bears and Packers withstood harsh conditions, and Green Bay came up with the victory Sunday.Aaron Rodgers hit Jordy Nelson with a 60-yard pass and Mason Crosby kicked a 32-yard field goal as time expired to lift the Packers to 30-27 victory on a day when the game-time temperature was 11 and the wind chill minus-4.I think we watched The Weather Channel all week and the wind wasnt quite as bad as we thought, and I was very thankful the sun was out and that made it more manageable, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said.The 12-mph wind failed to hurt passing games as Rodgers completed 19 of 31 passes for 252 yards.It was uncomfortable at times, he said. But I think it was warmer than most of us were expecting.The Bears (3-11) and Packers (8-6) combined for 900 yards, their highest combined total since 1940 -- a span of 152 games.Bears quarterback Matt Barkley led a fourth-quarter comeback from a 27-10 deficit and completed 30 of 42 for 362 yards with two touchdowns -- but had three interceptions.Barkley did it wearing a wet suit to stay warm.I have (worn one) in the water, but not on a football field, Barkley said. It ended up working out well. It did not restrict my play.The Bears hosted Green Bay in 3-degree temperatures and a minus-15 wind chill on Dec. 18, 1983. The coldest game at Soldier Field in terms of pure temperature was Bears against the Packers Dec. 22, 2008, when it was 2 degrees, with a minus-13 wind chill.A total of 44,601 braved the conditions. There were 16,536 no-shows.Just from my experience, it wasnt in my top 10, Bears coach John Fox said of the cold. I think both teams reacted well to it, responded well to it.The payoff for weathering the cold for Green Bay was moving within a game of Detroit in the NFC North after the Lions lost to the New York Giants.Here are a few things to know from Green Bays fourth straight victory:GETTING HIS: A week after four Packers defensive backs combined for five interceptions against Seattle, Ha Ha Cllinton-Dix got two of his own. Korbinian Holzer Gear. The Packers safety didnt make an interception against Seattle, but ended successive Bears possessions with interceptions in the third quarter.I saw a lot of my guys make plays last week, Clinton-Dix said. I felt out of the loop a little bit. I was in the right place at the right time and made plays.THE DROPS: Packers receiver Davante Adams has made strides in the offense, but either the cold got the best of him or he took a step back by dropping two easy touchdown passes.You get those days every once in a while, Nelson said. You dont wish that upon anyone. Hes played extremely well for us, making huge plays -- still came back and made a big play on the sideline, making a guy miss.NO GAMBLER: Fox called his decision not to go for a win on fourth-and-goal from the Packers 4-yard line one that would be second-guessed regardless, depending on the games final outcome.Connor Barth kicked a tying 22-yard field goal, and Rodgers completed a 60-yard pass to Nelson on third-and-11 to set up the winning kick.To an extent, Barkley agreed with Foxs decision, but added, Obviously I would have loved to score and win.CONVERTED BACK: Injuries to Eddie Lacy and James Starks reduced the Packers running game to leaning on former receiver Ty Montgomery, and he produced a career-high 162 yards on 16 carries.His previous career high had been against the Bears, as well. He had 60 yards on nine carries on Oct. 20 in a 26-10 win.I dont think people understand how built he is, Rodgers said. Hes a compact, 220-pound guy who has quick twitch, but hes also got a really good stiff arm.GUTWRENCHING: The loss was the sixth by a touchdown or less -- and second straight by three points -- for the injury-plagued Bears.Rallying from 17 down in the fourth quarter didnt ease their pain.Were fighting to the end, were pushing, Bears defensive end Akiem Hicks said.
