    ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- Taj Mathews scored a career-high 26 points Sunday to lead Navy to an 84-69 win over Army.

    Mathews hit 6-of-14 3-pointers in his final Army-Navy game, and the Mids had five players score in double figures. Mathews also added a career-high eight rebounds for the Mids.

    Greg Sprink added 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Mids, his second career double-double. Sprink made 4-of-8 3-pointers as the Mids made a season-best 13 threes on a season-high 34 attempts.

    Matt Fannin and Corey Johnson added 12 points each, and George O'Garro scored 11 for the Mids (7-15, 3-6).

    The win took away some of the sting for the Mids after a 63-43 loss at Army on Jan. 23. It also prevented Army from sweeping the series for the first time since 1992.

    Navy held a big rebounding advantage over the Knights, 47-29, and made 23 free throws to Army's 12.

    Army (3-18, 1-8) was led by Grant Carter's 21 points, which came on seven 3-pointers -- an Army-Navy game record. Matt Bell added 16 points, and Colin Harris had 12 points for Army.

    The two teams tried 57 3-pointers between them. Navy's 3-point totals were the second most in school history.

    Navy never trailed in the game, jumping to a 12-1 lead as Army missed its first seven shots and didn't score a basket over the game's first six minutes.

    The Mids ran their lead to 15 and led by 34-19 before Army went on a 13-0 run to end the half.

    Navy didn't score over the final 4:22 of the half, missing its final six shots. The teams were tied at 37 with 18:38 to play, but Navy ran off a 14-2 run to go up 51-39 with 14:10 to play.

    The Knights rallied back to within 71-67 with 3:50 to play, as Carter hit three 3-pointers during a 15-7 Army run.
