    WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) -- Matt Bell hit three three-pointers and scored a team-high 16 points to lead Army to a 53-50 win over Navy on Sunday.

    Jarell Brown, Corban Bates and Doug Williams added eight points apiece to help Army (13-7, 3-2 Patriot League) to its first 13-win season since the 1986-87 team finished at 14-15.

    After ending the first half ahead 25-23, Army began the second half on a 12-4 run to open up a 37-27 advantage at the 14:47 mark. Bell scored eight of the Black Knights' points during the spurt, which gave Army its largest lead of the game.

    Three-pointers by T.J. Topercer, Adam Teague and Greg Sprink ignited an 11-0 run for Navy (11-9, 1-4), giving the Midshipmen their first lead of the second half, 38-37, with 9:34 left.

    The teams traded baskets until a three-point play by Sprink put Navy up 43-41 at 5:08. Bates scored Army's next six points to give Army a 47-43 lead that it would not relinquish.

    A three-pointer by Sprink with six seconds to go brought Navy within two points of Army at 52-50. A Bell free throw increased Army's lead to 53-50 and Sprink's three-point attempt from the left wing clanged off the rim as the buzzer sounded.

    Sprink finished with a game-high 19 points, while Torpercer added 11 points.
