Stephan's layup gives Navy 67-66 victory over Yale

January 01, 1999|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Mandy Stephan's layup with five seconds left gave Navy a 67-66 win over Yale yesterday in a women's basketball game at Alumni Hall.

With the Midshipmen (7-5) trailing 66-65, Stephan took an inbounds pass and drove for the game-winner.

"This team likes to live close," Navy coach Joe Sanchez said. "We got the inbounds and isolation we wanted, and Mandy just took it to the hole. We're a young team, so we're going to get into games like this."

Navy's Laura Coffey led all scorers with 24 points on 9-for-10 shooting to become the ninth player in school history to record 1,000 career points; she now has 1,001. She also had a game-high nine rebounds yesterday.
