Navy 69, Lehigh 58
BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) _ Michael Heary scored 22 points _ including five 3-pointers _ to lead Navy to a 69-58 win over Lehigh on Saturday night in the Patriot League.
Rashawne Glenn scored 17 points for Lehigh (11-15, 5-9), while Ken Widmer added 16 points for the Engineers. Ivan Wilkins, playing his first game in more than three weeks after dislocating his shoulder in a game against Army, contributed 11 points to the Lehigh effort.
But no Lehigh player was able to connect on any of seven attempts from 3-point range. Glenn, the team’s leading scorer, failed four times.
Navy (18-8, 10-4) was ahead 33-26 at the end of the first half and led by as many as 15 points during the second half. Lehigh rallied with a 16-5 run that cut Navy’s lead to four points, 61-57, but Navy recovered to end the game with an 11-point margin.
Heary overshadowed the efforts of other Navy players, and the Navy guard was also responsible for eight of the team’s 15 assists. Brian Walker scored 10 points for the Midshipmen and Alex Kohnen grabbed 10 rebounds.
The two schools will face each other again next Saturday in West Point, N.Y., for the first round of the Patriot League Tournament.
