A 6-plus hour road trip to Syracuse, N.Y. did not derail the undefeated Bentley College men's basketball team.
Sophomore guard Lew Finnegan of Lexington poured in a career-high 27 points and also registered six rebounds and four steals to power Bentley past host Le Moyne 67-57 in a Northeast-10 Conference matchup on Saturday afternoon.
Bentley, ranked fourth nationally in Division 2, improved to 16-0 overall.
With the game even at 41 five minutes into the second half, the Falcons seized control with a 19-6 run over a span of 8:15, opening a 60-47 lead with 6:43 to play.
Bentley will look to make it 17 straight on Wednesday when it hosts Saint Anselm (7:30 p.m.).
