Navy coach Don DeVoe knew pretty much what to expect from returning senior center Josh Williams, a solid rebounder, and sophomore forward Chris Williams, a late bloomer in last season's second straight Patriot League championship run.But it was a third Williams -- home-grown sophomore forward John Williams who provided the big surprise in Navy's 78-61 opening-game rout of Rice at Alumni Hall last night.Lightly played as a plebe last season, the Annapolis native who prepped at Broadneck High scored 17 of his 23 points in the second half when the Midshipmen broke away from a 43-43 tie to grab a 63-47 lead with 7: 45 left.

With his team getting unexpected competition from Division III Gettysburg for more than a half, Navy basketball coach Don DeVoe got an unexpected lift from lightly played sophomore power forward Josh Hill, making his first varsity start at Alumni Hall yesterday.Hill, playing in place of team scoring leader Sitapha Savane, who is nursing a sore left knee, crammed 11 of his 15 points into the second half when the Midshipmen (10-3) pulled away from a shaky one-point lead with 16: 36 left to rout the Bullets, 81-49.

If Navy coach Don DeVoe wanted a tough test before beginning conference play against Bucknell tomorrow night, he got more than he bargained for before putting away a spunky, well-drilled Harvard team, 75-71, at Alumni Hall last night.The Midshipmen (10-3) appeared in control, leading 70-59 with 2: 29 left. But forward Dan Clemente hit an open three-pointer that pulled the Crimson within a point, 70-69, with 39 seconds remaining.Despite several opportunities created by Navy turnovers, that was as close as Harvard (6-7)

Broadcaster Bob Socci faces a real challenge calling Navy basketball games this season."For a start," said Socci, "we've got three guys on the team named Williams -- Josh, Chris and John. When they're on the floor at the same time, I have to concentrate on calling them by their full names so I don't confuse my audience."Then you've got a problem in the backcourt with Skip Victor and Reggie Skipworth, and what if they throw a skip pass?"If that's not enough, Socci faces a real tongue-twister in junior forward Sitapha Savane.
