    WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) -- Jarell Brown scored 23 points, Doug Williams added 10 and Army beat Portland 70-66 Saturday.

    Army (7-6) shot 50 percent from the floor, finishing 24-for-48, and was 42.9 percent on 3-pointers.

    Sherrard Watson led Portland (5-10) with 17 points, while Taishi Ito added 13 and Robin Smeulders scored 10 points and had a game-high nine rebounds.

    Portland shot 42.3 percent, finishing 22-of-52 from the floor, and was 38.9 percent from beyond the arc.

    Brown, who came in averaging 20.7 points, had just five at the half before erupting for 18 second-half points.

    Trailing by five at the half, Portland took control early in the second half and had a 36-33 lead with 13:24 remaining.

    Army regained the lead minutes later, but Watson then drilled a jumper to give the lead back to Portland at 40-39 with 10 minutes left.

    The Black Knights then embarked on 21-10 run to gain control of the game.
