WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. (AP) _ Ron Kornegay resigned Friday as basketball coach at Monmouth College, citing the team's 1-6 record.

''At this time, I feel it is best that someone else take over,'' Kornegay said. ''Right now, the program needs to go in another direction.''

Assistant coach Ron Krayel will serve as interim head coach, and Kornegay will remain as assistant athletic director, a position he has held for five years.
