Navy had a brief stay in the Patriot League basement. With Greg Sprink striking for 27 points and plebe Adam Teague supplying a career-high 19 off the bench in a 77-68 win, the Midshipmen leapfrogged past both Army and Colgate last night by beating American University at home for the first time since David Robinson was dominating the Colonial Athletic Association. It was the first conference victory of the season for Navy (8-10, 1-4), which last beat the Eagles in Annapolis on Jan. 17, 1987, when it was playing at Halsey Field House.

Since the season began, Navy has lost its most productive big man from last season to a disciplinary action and its most productive big man of this season to a broken arm in practice last Sunday. Matt Fannin tried to compensate for their losses with a career-high 19 rebounds and 16 points last night, but it wasn't enough as the Midshipmen fell to Patriot League rival American University, 66-60, at Alumni Hall. Fannin's rebound total was the highest for Navy since David Robinson had 20 in 1987.

Army picked the perfect game to amass its highest point total in more than four years. With their three-point shooters blazing early, the Black Knights conquered their Alumni Hall hex yesterday, finishing with 57.8 percent accuracy from the field to subdue arch rival Navy, 80-73, before 3,924 fans. They relinquished the Patriot League cellar to Navy (7-10, 0-4), which couldn't capitalize on the return of Matt Fannin, its best inside player. Army - which entered the game with the lowest output in the league - had not scored as many since Jan. 19, 2002, when it registered 85 points in a victory over Lafayette.

"We went to his company and helped to get the problem resolved."Since the center's help line opened in June, 300 such calls have been logged.

LEWISBURG, Pa. - Navy's David Hooper, who appeared to be fouled when he launched what would have been the game-winning shot, missed a three-pointer in overtime, and No. 6 Navy fell to No. 3 American, 85-83, in the Patriot League tournament quarterfinals at Bucknell's Sojka Pavilion. "We had a very good officaiting crew, so why they would not call a foul on a 25-footer by someone who had already hit five treys is beyond me," Navy coach Billy Lange said. "But we did not get the call." American will now play in the semifinal game tomorrow afternoon at 1 p.m. against No. 2 Bucknell.

Columbia senior Matt Preston has a haircut that looks like he should be playing bass guitar in his best friend's garage band, and a vertical leap that probably wouldn't stand out in most local YMCA games. But even if he doesn't look the part, it's clear that the shaggy-haired Preston is one of the Ivy League's best players. The 6-foot-5 forward had his way with Navy last night in Annapolis, scoring a season-high 23 points to lead the Lions to a 69-63 victory at Alumni Hall. "I guess I'm just scrappy," said Preston, who has vowed to not cut his hair for the rest of the season.

EMMITSBURG - Three players recorded double doubles to help Navy break a four-game losing streak by defeating Mount St. Mary's, 90-81, last night at Knott Arena. The victory helped erase the memory of Saturday's loss to Division III Gettysburg. The Midshipmen (4-6) won the game mainly on the boards and at the foul line, but also ran their up-tempo offense effectively and had five players score in double figures. Corey Johnson scored 15 points, and David Hooper added 10. Matt Fannin (19 points, 10 rebounds)
