Tonight's games

January 15, 1996

Lehigh (3-9) at UMBC (1-12)

Site: UMBC Fieldhouse

Time: 7

Outlook: The Retrievers lost their 10th in a row Saturday, 54-38, to Charleston Southern. It was their lowest point total in school history, and it wasn't unexpected, considering that leading scorer Tony Thompson was out with a sprained ankle. His status remains day-to-day. Lehigh, of the Patriot League, has never faced UMBC. It shot 51 percent from the field and held Army to 31 percent shooting in Saturday's 84-70 win. Lehigh led by as many as 21 in the second half.

Navy (7-6) at William & Mary (4-7)

Site: William and Mary Hall, Williamsburg, Va.

Time: 7:30

Radio: WNAV (1430 AM)

Outlook: The Midshipmen have won two straight, with sophomore F Eddie Lucas contributing 36 points in the two victories. Junior G Brian Walker played the full 40 minutes in both games. Sophomore swingman Michael Heary (12.4 ppg) leads Navy in scoring. William and Mary has whipped James Madison and Richmond, but lost its last outing to American, 91-80. Senior F Carl Parker leads the Tribe, averaging 15.5 points and 7.1 rebounds. Navy leads the all-time series, 35-17.

Loyola (3-8) at Manhattan (7-5)

Site: Draddy Gymnasium, Riverdale, N.Y.

Time: 7:30

Radio: WCAO (600 AM)

Outlook: The Greyhounds had a two-game winning streak end at Siena on Thursday, and now they play a team that is 5-0 at home this season. Loyola got 19 points and seven rebounds from sophomore G Mike Powell (19.7 ppg) against Siena. Freshman C Nsilo Abraham (9.4 ppg) had 18 points and seven rebounds, and junior F Anthony Smith (14.8 ppg) had 14 points, five rebounds, seven assists and two blocks. Loyola is 0-1 in the MAAC; Manhattan is 1-0. The Jaspers are coming off Saturday's 71-52 rout of St. Peter's and have won three straight. Sophomore F Heshimu Evans averages 14.2 points. Manhattan beat Loyola twice last year and leads the series, 13-4. The Jaspers have won seven of the last eight, the only Loyola win coming two seasons ago for the MAAC championship.

UMES (9-6) at Morgan St. (1-11)

Site: Hill Field House

Time: 7:30

Radio: WEAA (88.9 FM)

Outlook: The Fighting Hawks continue to receive outstanding play from senior G Aaron McKinney, and they continue to win. McKinney again led the team in scoring Saturday, getting 23 points and going over 1,000 for his career in a 71-65 victory over Howard. UMES is 4-1 in the MEAC, and the Hawks probably wish they didn't have to travel, since they've won their last 10 home games. Because of the snow, Morgan State hasn't played since Jan. 4, when it lost by 16 to South Carolina State in its MEAC opener. The Bears are home for only the third time this season. Scoring has been a problem -- senior G Paul Grant leads them at 9.9 ppg -- and they need to do a better job on the boards.
