Army 69, Navy 50

Cleveland Richard scored 15 points and Chris Walker added a

season-high 14, leading Army past rival Navy 69-50 on Saturday.

It was Richard’s career-best seventh straight game in double

figures for the Black Knights (14-12, 4-8 Patriot League) while

Walker also grabbed a team-high seven rebounds.

Marcus Nelson recorded one blocked shot to tie the Army career

record of 74 held by Jimmy Sewell (2003-07). Walker blocked three

shots and stands fifth all-time with 52.

The win snapped the Black Knights’ three-game losing streak.

O.J. Avworo and Jordan Sugars scored 13 points each for the

Midshipmen (13-14, 7-5).

It was Navy’s lowest scoring output of the season and just the

third time this year they did not score at least 60 points. Army,

the league’s top-ranked scoring defense, improved to 13-2 this

season when keeping opponents to less than 60 points.
