Washington College avoided a loss — Division III programs cannot play official games until Tuesday — and was able to prepare for its season against a much taller Navy squad that outrebounded the Shoremen 44-17. Washington College's full-court press, however, was able to force 23 turnovers by Navy.
Nourse Fox made three 3-pointers and scored 13 points for the Mids (1-1), who were without starter Shawn Anderson, who sat out with a lower leg injury.
