Nov 14, 2009 - 2:56 AM RICHMOND, Va.(AP) -- Kevin Anderson scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half Friday to lead Richmond to a 65-53 win over Lehigh in the season opener for both teams.

The Spiders began their winning rally with 12:59 left and Lehigh leading 41-37. Richmond scored the next 10 points. The Mountain Lions cut the lead to 49-46 with 5:55 left but could get no closer. Anderson scored 7 of the next 9 points to help the Spiders move to a 58-49 lead with 3:24 remaining.

The Mountain Hawks jumped to a quick 15-6 lead in the first 7:51, hitting 3 of 4 3-pointers. The Spiders missed 12 of their first 14 shots.

But Richmond's defense stiffened and the game was tied 25-25 at halftime.

Justin Harper scored 14, Dan Geriot, who missed last season with a knee injury, added 11, and David Gonzalvez also had 11 for the Spiders.

Marquis Hall led Lehigh with 14 points.
