Chris Williams scored 19 points, Reggie Skipworth added 14, and Robert Reeder had 13 points and nine rebounds yesterday to lead visiting Navy to a convincing 79-64 win over Wofford in a non-conference men's basketball game.

The Midshipmen (5-1) jumped to a 39-20 halftime lead, thanks in part to poor shooting by the Terriers, who were just 5-for-27 (18.5 percent) from the field in the first half. Wofford shot only 34.5 percent for the game, while Navy shot 51.9 percent.
