Hofstra 74, Towson 69: Tareq Coburn scored 26 points, knocking down seven 3-pointers, and Hofstra held off Towson on Sunday for the weekend sweep.


Coburn scored 21 before halftime, but his two free throws with 4.2 seconds left sealed the win. He shot 7-for-9 from 3-point range and added three blocks.

Jalen Rucker added a career-high 18 points for the Black Knights, although he missed the potential game-winning jumper at the end of regulation.

Both teams struggled in overtime but Army took a four-point lead on Josh Caldwell’s jumper with less than a minute to go. Navy, which was just 3 for 11 in OT, missed a shot and the free throw shooting start, Army going 9 of 12 from the line in the last minute.

Junior guard Kolbi Green added 12 points for Navy (2-6, 2-2 Patriot League), which was outscored 17-12 during the decisive third quarter.

“I don’t feel like we made good decisions today offensively,” Navy coach Tim Taylor said. “We did not take enough quality shots and the lack of ball movement contributed to that. The ball was sticking, and we did not read the help well.”

Junior guard Alisa Fallon scored 14 points to lead four players in double figures for Army (6-7, 3-5), which limited Navy to 36.4% (24-for-66) shooting. Sophomore forward Sabria Hunter and freshman guard Sam McNaughton added 13 and 12 points for the Black Knights.

“Defensively we were not as disciplined as we needed to be,” Taylor said. “We allowed Army to get behind us at time and they us pay for those mistakes.”

Mount St. Mary’s 95, Central Connecticut State 61: The Mountaineers (6-3, 5-1 Northeast Conference) scored the first 14 points and never looked back, sweeping the Blue Devils (2-4, 2-4) in the weekend series.

The starting five led the charge, spearheaded by Kendall Bresee, who finished with 26 points and 15 rebounds. It was the first double double of at least 15 points and 15 rebounds for the Mount since Alexis Carter had 18 points and 15 rebounds against Fairleigh Dickinson on Jan. 16, 2017.

Michaela Harrison scored 20 points on 7-for-11 shooting, and Aryna Taylor finished with 13 points. Off the bench, freshman Isabella Hunt added 13 points.

The Tigers hit 14 3-pointers Sunday, the most in program history. Nelson made six from long range, including four in the first quarter, while Smith (four) and Jeter (three) also hit multiple shots from behind the arc. The previous record was 12, all occurring in 2015.
