December 04, 2007|By From staff reports

Sophomore guard Jeremy Goode had 14 points and four steals, and Mount St. Mary's beat host Navy, 62-58, last night.

The Mountaineers (2-4) never trailed, took advantage of the Midshipmen's early shooting woes and opened the game on a 13-0 run. Navy (3-7), which was led by senior Greg Sprink with 16 points and a team-high nine rebounds, clawed back and cut Mount St. Mary's lead to one point twice in the first half before going into the break trailing 32-29.

The Mount started the second half shooting 3-for-23 from the field but converted enough free throws to hold on.

Junior forward Sam Atupem had 11 points and eight rebounds for Mount St. Mary's, and senior guard Chris Vann added 11 points. Junior guard Kaleo Kina came off the bench for Navy and finished with 16 points, seven rebounds and three assists.

Delaware 70, Towson 63 -- Herb Courtney led four players in double figures with 22 points and grabbed eight rebounds, and the host Blue Hens defeated the Tigers. Courtney made nine of 17 from the field, hit two three-pointers and led Delaware (1-4, 1-0) with eight rebounds. Towson (3-4, 0-1) had four scorers in double figures but shot just 39.7 percent from the field (23 of 58) and hit 10 fewer free throws than the Hens.

No. 15 Indiana 84, Tennessee State 72 -- D.J. White scored a career-high 29 points, and the host Hoosiers survived an injury to high-scoring freshman Eric Gordon in a victory over the Tigers. The Hoosiers (7-1) led early by as many as 19 points, but Gordon left the game with about six minutes left in the first half after he fell hard to the floor. The Tigers (2-4) rallied to within seven points before two straight three-pointers by Indiana's Lance Stemler.
