ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Pendarvis Williams scored 20 points and Kyle O’Quinn had 17 points and 11 rebounds as Norfolk State defeated Navy 71-65 Sunday in the teams’ first meeting.

Williams scored 11 points during a 6 1/2-minute stretch when the Spartans (10-5) rallied from a 39-30 deficit to lead 50-48 with 12:19 remaining. Williams hit three 3-pointers during that run and was 4 of 4 from long range in the game.

Norfolk State didn’t trail again, but it never led by more than six and was ahead just 67-65 with 10 seconds left after Navy’s Thurgood Wynn made 1 of 2 free throws.

Chris McEachin gave the Spartans a four-point lead with two free throws, and Jamel Fuentes’ steal and two free throws with 6 seconds left provided the final margin.

J.J. Avila’s 18 points led the Midshipmen (3-11), whose seven-game losing streak is their longest since the 2003-04 squad lost 13 straight.
