Funk scores 8 points in OT, sparks Army past Navy, 86-75
WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) — Tommy Funk scored eight of his 32 points in overtime as Army completed its first regular-season sweep of Navy since the 2011-12 season by dominating the extra period to take an 86-75 victory on Saturday afternoon.
Funk hit two free throws with 41 seconds left in regulation to give the Black Knights a 67-61 lead, but Army then missed four straight free throws in the final half-minute as Navy climbed back to tie after Cam Davis hit a 3-pointer, Evan Wieck hit two free throws and Davis added three more from the line.
Alex King hit a 3 and Funk fed Josh Caldwell for a layup to open overtime before Funk scored twice at the basket and added a jumper that put Army up by nine, 80-71 after holding the Midshipmen to just a layup through the first four minutes of overtime.
Funk scored in double figures for the 23rd straight game for Army (14-13, 9-6 Patriot League), adding seven rebounds and seven assists. King was 4-for-4 from deep and finished with 22 points. Caldwell added 14 points and three steals and Matt Wilson added 13 points and grabbed 12 rebounds.
Army plays host to Holy Cross Wednesday before completing the regular season at Colgate Saturday. Navy, which has lost seven of its last nine games, plays host to Loyola of Maryland Wednesday before completing the regular season at Lafayette Saturday.
