Towson 's Martin, Gorham to transfer

Towson men's basketball sophomore standouts Zane Martin and Justin Gorham (Calvert Hall) have received their release from the school and will transfer. Martin, who declared for the NBA draft last month without hiring an agent, led the team in scoring and was the lone Tiger to earn All-Colonial Athletic Association honors last season. Gorham, a Baltimore native, started just eight games but finished third on the team in scoring and led Towson in rebounding. A team spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but Martin and Gorham both indicated on Twitter that they are leaving. Both will have two years of eligibility remaining and likely will have to sit out a year under NCAA transfer rules. Maryland is among the high-major schools reportedly interested in Martin, who more than tripled his freshman-year scoring average (19.8 points per game) last season. The Tigers' most experienced returning players are starting forward Alex Thomas and reserve guard Jordan McNeil (Mount Saint Joseph), who averaged a combined 7.6 points and 33 minutes per game last season.

Army sweeps Navy for Patriot baseball crown

Army West Point freshman third baseman Anthony Giachin hit a two-run double in the bottom of the seventh inning Monday to put the Black Knights in front for good, 5-3, as they claimed the Patriot League baseball championship with a two-game sweep over host Navy (38-16). Midshipmen senior right-hander Sean Kamhoot allowed two runs on seven hits in 52/3 innings, but the Navy offense could not solve Army's bullpen, which combined for 31/3 innings of scoreless relief. The Mids outhit the Black Knights 12-9 but left 10 runners on base. Army (35-22) clinched the Patriot League's automatic berth to the NCAA Division I tournament. Regional sites will be announced during the selection show next Monday at noon on ESPNU.
