    WASHINGTON -- Nick Hendra scored 14 points and added seven rebounds to lead American University in a 58-34 win over Army on Wednesday night.

    The win is the Eagles' (14-7, 6-1 Patriot League) ninth in the past 10 games and ties them with Holy Cross for first place in the conference.

    The loss snaps a three-game winning streak for the Black Knights (7-14, 3-4), who have never won four consecutive Patriot League Games.

    Hendra, who was averaging 5.6 points per game coming into the contest, came off the bench and shot 6-for-11 from the field and 2-for-4 from beyond the arc.

    Derrick Mercer added 13 points with eight rebounds and five assists for the Eagles, and has now scored in double-figures in seven of American's last eight games.

    Cleveland Richard led Army with nine points.

    American shot 7-for-18 from 3-point range, and outrebounded Army 38-19.
