WOMEN'S BASKETBALL (15-2):  Opened Patriot League play last Saturday at Colgate and won 69-58Army led 36-32 at the half, and at one point in the second half led by 20.  Junior Cara Enright scored 21 points, classmate Stephanie Stone scored 15, and yearling Megan Evans scored 14 with 8 rebounds.  Yesterday, completing the 2 game road trip, Army played at Holy Cross.  The Crusaders led 31-26 at the half, but the second half was all Army as the Cadets outscored Holy Cross 36-18 and won 62-49.  Four Army starters scored in double figures, led by Evans with 15 and senior Jennifer Hansen with 14.  Army's next 3 games are at home, beginning with Lehigh and American U. this coming weekend.

MEN'S BASKETBALL (10-7):  Our losing streak reached 3 as we were beaten in our first two league games.  At Colgate, in a game we needed to win, we lost in overtime 73-71.  Tuesday, at league favorite Holy Cross, we were drubbed 64-42.  The game was close in the first half.  Lehigh here Saturday.
