EMMITSBURG, Md. (AP) ― Mark Veazey scored 17 points to lead five Navy players in double figures in an 81-68 win over Mount St. Mary’s (Md.) on Monday night.

The Midshipmen snapped the Mountaineers’ 11-game home winning streak while winning by the largest margin in the series in seven years.

Navy (3-6), coming off an 89-81 overtime loss to Maryland-Eastern Shore, took the lead 4:34 into the game and led 45-32 at halftime — thanks to 8-of-16 shooting from 3-point range.

Mount St. Mary’s (2-4) closed to within 10 on three occasions in the second half, the last time with 5:30 left. The Midshipmen sealed the win with 9 of 12 foul shots in the last 5 minutes.

O.J. Avworo added 15 points for Navy, including 11 of 13 from the free-throw line. Isaiah Roberts had 11 points and Brennan Wyatt and J.J. Avila scored 10 apiece.

Shawn Atupem and Raven Barber led the Mountaineers with 13 each.
