The Johns Hopkins women's basketball team toppled Washington University (Mo.) - the top-ranked team in Division III - yesterday in St. Louis, 77-72, to capture the McWilliams Classic and give the Blue Jays their first win over a No. 1-ranked opponent in any sport other than men's lacrosse.

Senior guard Maureen Myers tied the score at 71 with 1:03 left, then hit a layup and two free throws in the next 41 seconds to give Johns Hopkins (5-0) the victory.

Junior forward Ashanna Randall, the tournament's Most Valuable Player, finished with a career-high 22 points and 13 rebounds for the Blue Jays.

Loyola 64, American 59: The Greyhounds scored the game's first 21 points, then withstood the visiting Eagles' comeback attempt at Reitz Arena.

Lauren Troupe and Jackie Valderas (Seton Keough) each scored 10 to lead the Greyhounds (2-1), who shot 59 percent in the first half and looked as though they were going to blow American out.

Still, the Eagles (2-1) fought back and had a chance to tie in the final 30 seconds, but a three-point attempt by Jenyce Woodruff fell short.

Bucknell 69, Coppin State 64: Desire Almind, Brooke Tomovich and Lindsey Hollobaugh combined for 57 of Bucknell's 69 points and 36 of its 50 rebounds in the victory in Lewisburg, Pa.

Three players scored in double figures for Coppin State (1-2), led by 13 apiece from LaKesha Wills (Dunbar) and Antoinette Reese. The Bison improved to 1-2.

Frostburg State 71, Gallaudet 31: The Bobcats won the consolation game of the Gallaudet Tournament despite shooting below 40 percent in each half. Tracey Little led the Bobcats (3-2) with 15 points, and Kelly True added 10 points and 13 rebounds.

Gallaudet (0-4) shot 20 percent from the field and committed 41 turnovers.

Syracuse 60, Navy 46: The Orangewomen (3-2) hit 20 of 24 free throws and out-rebounded the Mids 41-25 on its way to beating Navy (2-4) in the Rainbow Wahine Classic in Honolulu.

Navy hit one field goal in the first eight minutes and never completely recovered. Syracuse built a 20-7 lead and did not trail in the second half.

Men

James Madison 65, Navy 60: The Dukes (2-1), who held the lead for much of the contest, had to rally in the final minutes to beat the visiting Mids (0-4).

The decisive play came with Navy up two in the final minutes. Ray Barbosa, who led the Dukes with 21 points, drew a foul on a three-point attempt and hit all three free throws to give James Madison a 61-60 lead. Navy, which led 60-56 on Laramie Mergerson's jumper with 2:48 left, did not score after that.
