Navy was selected fifth in the Patriot League preseason poll based on, in part, a 4-9 overall record and a 2-4 mark in the conference last season. The Midshipmen finished out of the top four in the league and failed to qualify for the conference tournament for the first time in school history. Joe Alberici is well aware of those results, but the Army coach said overlooking Navy under the guidance of new coach Rick Sowell would be a mistake. “The demise of Navy is greatly exaggerated,” Alberici said last week.

"That's what our focus is. The rest of this stuff, I have no control over it, so it's wasted energy for us to talk about it. It's not going to make us any more excited to play the game.

Republican Rep. Roscoe Bartlett of Frederick has asked the Secretary of the Army to investigate whether the Army mistreated Pfc. Christopher Pfeiffer, 20, of Westminster.
