Army's baby-faced junior guard Mark Lueking rode into Annapolis with a reputation for being one of the top gunners in the country, averaging 26.8 points, and as the subject of several national stories.But Lueking was overshadowed yesterday by precocious Navy plebe Michael Heary, who scored a career-high 31 points to lead the Midshipmen to an 80-74 victory before a record Alumni Hall and Patriot League crowd of 6,370.Heary, who is being used in a sixth-man role, saved 22 points for the second half, when Navy came close to blowing a 16-point lead (52-36)

HARTFORD, Conn. -- The Naval Academy's second straight trip to the NCAA basketball tournament and a first-round encounter with top-ranked North Carolina at the Hartford Civic Center on Thursday afternoon was anything but a smooth ride.There were numerous speed bumps along the way, but veteran coach Don DeVoe made one bold decision in late December that set his Midshipmen in the right direction.After the first nine games, the Mids were 4-5 and the major problem was obvious to DeVoe and his staff.

In Navy's final regular-season home game against Bucknell two weeks ago, Michael Heary found himself the middle man on a three-on-one fast break.Heary took it strong to the basket, but, at the last second, attempted a behind-the-back pass that was intercepted. At the next whistle, Heary found himself sitting next to coach Don DeVoe."We don't practice behind-the-back passes," said DeVoe, a strict fundamentalist.This brief incident is vividly recalled because it was one of the few times this season that DeVoe had reason to criticize his junior guard.

Michael Heary is Navy's biggest offensive threat, and when he missed the Midshipmen's game against Rice with an illness on Monday, they immediately fell behind by 16 points and lost by 17.Last night at Alumni Hall, Heary returned to equal his career high of 31 points and Navy ended a four-game losing streak by beating Harvard, 66-63."

Navy's Don DeVoe achieved his 400th career coaching victory in Annapolis last night. But it took his emotional outburst in the second half to arouse the Midshipmen, who responded with an 83-75victory over Holy Cross in a Patriot League game.Leading 54-49 with 12: 29 remaining, Navy failed to box out on the offensive backboard, allowing the Crusaders' Ian Dumbroski a clear path to rebound the ball for an uncontested layup.That prompted DeVoe to stomp his foot and remove his blazer in a show of disgust.

With 12: 26 remaining and Navy leading Air Force, 52-43, at Alumni Hall yesterday, Michael Heary, the Midshipmen's leading scorer, dropped to the floor in pain.It was determined that Heary had merely had the wind knocked out of him by an errant elbow. But, this off-the-ball play also knocked Navy's offense completely out of sync.The Mids would make only three field goals the rest of the game and Air Force used two free throws by senior guard Jarmica Reese with seven seconds remaining to win a 64-63 thriller before 1,717 fans.

Brian Walker and Michael Green, who co-captained last season's NCAA-bound Navy basketball team, each averaged a modest six points a game. But finding adequate replacements for the two departed seniors will be Don DeVoe's primary concern in preparing his Midshipmen for their defense of the Patriot League title.Walker, a four-year starter at point guard, was the catalyst for the Navy offense with his ball-handling skills and pesky defense. Green, a quick-handed, 6-foot-5 small forward, served as DeVoe's defensive stopper, regularly assigned to police the rival team's top scorer.
