    Navy 84, The Citadel 70

    ANNAPOLIS, Md., (AP) -- Greg Sprink scored 31 points to lead Navy past The Citadel 84-70 on Saturday.

    Sprink made six 3-pointers and scored 18 points in the first half to help Navy (6-5) take a 42-29 lead. He scored eight points during a second-half run that gave the Mids' their largest lead of the game at 61-39 with 13 minutes remaining. He finished 10-for-17 from the field.

    David Hooper came off the bench to score 16 points for Navy which has won six of its last seven.

    Kevin Hammack led The Citadel (6-6) with 13 points in its third straight double-digit loss. J'Mel Everhart added 10 points for the Bulldogs, who are 0-3 against the Midshipmen in Annapolis.

    Joseph Thompson scored all seven of his points during an 11-0 run that cut The Citadel's deficit to 61-50 at the 10:49 mark. Navy forward Matt Fannin halted the rally with a layup and the visitors would get no closer.

    The Citadel was playing without starting guard Vytautas Valiulis, who suffered a broken hand over the Christmas break.

    The Midshipmen made a season-high 11 3-pointers and forced the Bulldogs into 21 turnovers. It was Navy's first win this season over a Division I opponent with a winning record.
