    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Brayden Billbe scored five of his career-high 19 points in the final minutes and American never trailed en route to its first win of the season, 80-60 over Mount St. Mary's.

    Andre Ingram scored 13 and Arvydas Eitutavicius and Travis Lay each added 11 for the Eagles (1-6), who outrebounded the Mount 36-24 in American's first home game of the season.

    Mychal Cook led the Mount (1-5) with 13 points off the bench, keeping his team close in the first half, but scoring only a late basket in the second.

    American took control with an 18-2 run in the second half, keyed by back-to-back 3-pointers from Eitutavicius and Garrison Carr, to take a 57-40 lead.

    The Mount answered with a 10-0 spurt, including 6-of-6 foul shooting from Mychal Kearse, but never got closer then seven.

    Billbe helped the Eagles pull away with an inside basket and a three-point play, stretching the American lead to 20 before fouling out with 1:05 to play.

    American opened the game on an 11-0 run. The Mount responded to tie it twice, first at 26-all on Cook's 3-pointer from the right elbow, and then at 31 on Chris Vann's layup. ^
