Good morning. It’s gameday, so we’re gonna keep this one really short.
Navy men’s basketball picked up a big win over Towson last night after having lost 4 of their prior 5 games. The game saw the return of Worth Smith to the lineup, who had been out since the opening game against Michigan State with a knee injury. His impact was immediate and substantial. Smith had 13 points in the first half en route to 20 for the game. He also added 9 rebounds and 2 blocks in 28 minutes of play. Brandon Venturini also had a big game with 19 points. Defensively, Navy held Towson to just 29% shooting from the field. Navy will open Patriot League play on New Year’s Eve when they host Loyola at 4pm.
The final tally: 10,800 ticket sold, including 7,000 donated. BZ, tell your squad leader.
