Cornell 58, Army 51

WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) -- Lenny Collins scored 18 points to lead
three Cornell players in double figures as the Big Red pulled away
late for a 58-51 victory over Army Sunday afternoon.

Luke Slater paced the Black Knight attack with a career-high 15
points and six rebounds, and Jimmy Sewell had 10 points.

Cody Toppert had 12 points for Cornell and Eric Taylor added 11.

Collins hit a crucial three-pointer with 2:46 to play, giving
Cornell (4-7) a 50-48 lead it would not relinquish. Collins' bucket
ignited a game-ending 13-5 Big Red surge as Cornell downed Army for
the sixth consecutive season.

The Black Knights (2-9) had chances in the final 30 seconds, but
guard Travis Owsley missed a leaner in the lane and Matt Bell's
baseline jumper bounced off the rim.

Army shot 42.5 percent from the field and 94.1 percent from the
foul line, but was plagued by 20 turnovers. Cornell shot 39.6
percent from the field.
