Cold shooting and poor rebounding continue to plague the Cadets as they fell twice this past weekend to Lehigh (63-45) and Lafayette (66-49) away from home. These two losses now bring Army's record to 1-6 in the Patriot League at the halfway point. They need to step up their game significantly if they expect to fare better as they begin the second half of the season.

WEST POINT, N.Y. -- The Navy men's basketball team started strong but struggled in the game's last 30 minutes as arch-rival Army defeated the Mids, 63-43, Sunday afternoon at Christl Arena. The 20-point loss, Navy's eighth in a row, was the third-worst loss for Navy in the 101-game series and worst against Army since February 28, 1970. The Mids are now 4-14 overall and 0-5 in the Patriot League.

The Army men's basketball game saved their best game of the year for the start of the Patriot League schedule. Unfortunately, host Colgate proved to be just a little better, edging the Cadets 60-56 in the Patriot League opener for both teams. Still, Army more than held its own against a tough league opponent, and this bodes well for a significant improvement over last year's 3-12 record.
