State

November 11, 2007|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Will Holland and Chris Vann combined for 46 points for Mount St. Mary's, but it wasn't enough in a 77-62 loss to George Washington.

Rob Diggs led George Washington (1-0) with 21 points and six rebounds, and Wynton Witherspoon added 15 points and 11 boards. Maureece Rice added 15 points while Damian Hollis chipped in nine points and a game-high 12 rebounds in the victory for the Colonials.

Holland scored 18 of his career-high 25 points in the second half to pace Mount St. Mary's (0-1). The 6-4 guard was 5-of-12 from three-point range while chipping in four rebounds, three assists and two steals.

Coppin State 72, Allen 61 -- Tywain McKee led a balanced attack with 16 points as the Eagles (2-0) defeated Allen. It marks just the sixth time in school history, and first since the 1995-96 season, that Coppin State has begun a season with two straight victories. McKee, a First Team All-Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference selection last season, finished the game just 3-of-8 shooting from the floor but was a perfect 10-of-10 from the free throw line.

Winthrop 47, Navy 33 -- The Midshipmen (0-2) shot just 21 percent from the field and turned the ball over 21 times in a loss to the host Eagles (0-2). "We never were able to get into any kind of offensive flow," Navy coach Tom Marryott said. "You can credit Winthrop for some of that, but we also share a great deal of the responsibility for failing to get into the offense." Cassie Consedine accounted for six of Navy's 11 made field goals on the afternoon and was the lone Midshipmen to make multiple field goals. She finished with 14 points and 12 rebounds.
