    WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) -- Keith Simmons scored 18 points as Holy Cross raced to a 22-point halftime lead for a 66-49 win over Army in its regular-season finale on Saturday.

    Holy Cross (22-5, 13-1 Patriot), which won its 14th consecutive game, will play Army again in the conference quarterfinals next on Friday.

    Matt Bell scored 14 points to lead Army (3-23, 1-13).

    After the Cadets' Cory Sinning scored the opening basket, the Crusaders used a 12-0 run to take control.

    Kevin Hamilton hit a 3-point field goal to start Holy Cross on a 19-9 run as the Crusaders took a 36-14 halftime lead.

    Army pulled within 38-27 with an 11-0 run early in the second half. Bell hit a pair of 3-pointers in the run and Jimmy Sewell added another.

    But Holy Cross responded with a 12-2 run sparked by Torey Thomas and Simmons for a 50-29 lead with 9:34 left.

    Army never got closer than 14 the rest of the way.
