Navy has played a few close games this season, only to see their opponent go on a late run to put the game out of reach. Last night, it was Navy that went on an 10-0 run and gave themselves a cushion that they never relinquished, beating Holy Cross for the first time in their last 18 tries, 85-74. Chris Harris had 29 points, Greg Sprink had 28, and Kaleo Kina dished out 7 assists to lead the Mids. Romeo Garcia chipped in 5 steals in a solid defensive effort. Navy was hopelessly outrebounded, but made up for it by shooting nearly 45% from 3-point range, compared only 20% for the Crusaders. Just as important for the Mids was going 20-23 at the free throw line and maximizing posessions, committing only 8 turnovers. Mark Veazey made a ridiculously athletic dunk on an offensive rebound that was unfortunately waved off due to goaltending basket interference, but it was still fun to look at.

Lafayette is sitting at 4-0 after a convincing win over Bucknell last night. Holy Cross has lost back-to-back games to Army and Navy… What is this, 1999? All of a sudden, the Army game this weekend looks like a contest for far more than just bragging rights for Navy.

  1. Not goaltending, basket interference :-)

  2. That’s what I get for listening to the Holy Cross student broadcast on all-access and not Bob on WNAV.
