    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.
