A dominant game-closing run propelled Navy to its second consecutive win, as the Midshipmen bested the Penn State-Harrisburg Lions by a 67-42 margin on Wednesday night at Alumni Hall in Annapolis, Md.
Freshman forward Jace Hogan scored 14 points off the bench to pace Navy (2-4), which had lost its first four games this season — including three straight by double digits — before bouncing back against Binghamton on Sunday and then topping the Lions.
Navy’s latest win did not come easily. The Midshipmen led 21-16 at the half despite making 15 turnovers and shooting 7-of-18 from the field. The Division III Lions continued to hang around, trailing just 47-40 with 8:24 remaining before Navy went on a 20-2 run to finish the contest.
Hogan was pivotal during that stretch, which he sparked with back-to-back layups. Seven of his 14 points came in the final 8:24 of the game.
Hogan led four Midshipmen in double figures. Guard Zach Fong added 12 points, forward Edward Alade added 11 and guard Tilman Dunbar scored 10.
Navy shot an even 50 percent (15-for-30) in the second half, and won the rebounding battle by a 42-20 margin. Alade grabbed nine boards.
Forward Winton Lyle scored a team-high 12 points in 36 minutes to lead the Lions (0-6).
