Poor shooting sinks Mids against Army

The Baltimore Sun

Army 76, Navy 71 - Adam Teague scored 16 points, and reserves Clif Colbert and Jordan Sugars added 14 and 13, respectively, but poor shooting doomed Navy in its loss yesterday to Army in West Point, N.Y.

The Midshipmen (14-6, 3-2 Patriot League) shot just 19-for-61 (31.1 percent) from the field.

"Army played a great game. They didn't do anything funky or fancy, but they just completely outplayed us," Navy coach Billy Lange said. "I thought our guys had the right intentions, but we just ran into a team that was desperate to win a game. I had watched them on film, and we knew they were better than their record."

Cleveland Richard scored 17 points, and Josh Miller added 14 for the Black Knights (5-13, 1-3).

Army shot 26-for-40 (65 percent) for the game.
