Senior center Laurie Coffey scored 18 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to power the visiting Navy women (3-1) to the DANKA Classic title last night with a 70-65 win over host Nevada (1-2).

The Mids have won three in a row, including tournament victories over San Jose State and Nevada over the weekend.

Coffey shot 7-for-12 from the field and 4-for-8 from the line. Plebe guard Hilary Goodrich scored 13, shooting 60 percent (6-for-10) from the field. Tournament MVP Mandy Stephan scored nine, after getting a career-high 21 in Navy's first-round tournament win over San Jose State Saturday.

Junior forward Erica Hayes earned all-tournament honors with her nine-point performance against Nevada and 27 points against San Jose State.

Nevada was led by senior forward Tory Clark, who had 20 points and 10 rebounds.

Johns Hopkins 94, Salisbury State 72: Marjahana Segers scored a game-high 24 and had 11 rebounds, as the Blue Jays (2-0) took the title game of the Blue Jay Classic for the sixth time in eight years.

Amy Cooke led Salisbury State (1-1) with 19 points and 10 rebounds.

The Blue Jays jumped out to a 50-33 halftime lead as Segers and tournament MVP Leslie Ritter each scored 11. The Sea Gulls came no closer than 14 in the second half.

UMBC 62, Morgan State 58: Monica Logan scored 16 and pulled down 13 rebounds to lead the Retrievers (1-2) over the Bears (0-2) in the consolation game of the UMBC Invitational.

Jamie Lang had 14 points for the winners, and Amie Laasen added 10. Shakira Smith and Monique Liddell led the Bears -- who shot just 31.3 percent -- with 15 points each.

Mount St. Mary's 78, Harvard 75: Megan Gardiner had a team-high 24 points and nine rebounds to help the Mountaineers (1-2) edge the host Crimson (1-2) in a game with six ties and eight lead changes.
