Army has won three straight league games for the first time since the 1998-99 seasons.
Hey, it was a good run.
The Army women's basketball team's 12-game winning streak came to an end with a 49-44 loss to Navy on Sunday. A win would have given the Black Knights the third-longest active win streak in the nation.
Still, Army is off to its best start in school history. The Black Knights' enter Tuesday's game against Lafayette 17-3, 4-1 Patriot League.
The start of Army's baseball season is right around the corner. The Black Knights open the season Feb. 16 against Sam Houston State in Houston.
Army has won the Patriot League title two of the last three years (2004-05) and are one of the favorites to win the championship this spring. The Black Knights have 30 or more wins in each of the last three seasons.
The Black Knights return 18 letterwinners this season, an experienced group that includes seniors Milan Dinga, Nick Hill and Kyle Scogin, as well as junior Cole White. All four players have garnered some form of All-America honors the past three seasons. Dinga has been named a preseason All-America this winter by the Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, while Hill and Dinga have both been named to the "Watch List" for the 2007 Brooks Wallace Award (presented annually to college baseball's national player of the year).
