UMBC, Towson women win

November 16, 2010|By From Sun staff reports

Greg Brown scored 18 points and grabbed 11 rebounds Tuesday night as Navy defeated Neumann, 74-62.

Neumann (0-2), a Division III team, was undone by 35 turnovers and an inability to keep Navy from grabbing key offensive rebounds. The Midshipmen (1-2) grabbed 17 offensive rebounds to Neumann's nine.

Navy had beaten its previous four Division III opponents over the past four years by an average of 32.3 points, so the Knights gave the Midshipmen a better game than most. In fact, the Knights took their final lead, 45-44, on Marquise Boggs' jumper with 13:37 to play.

Navy answered with an 11-0 run in which Jordan Sugars contributed a layup and a 3-pointer. That gave the Midshipmen a 55-45 lead with 9:51 to play, and the closest the Knights came thereafter was six points.

Sugars added 16 points for Navy.

Patrick O'Connor led Neumann with 21 points. Boggs added 14.
