    ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Brandon Venturini scored 14 points as Navy withstood a late charge by Bucknell to escape with a 62-61 win on Wednesday.

    Navy (7-9, 2/3 Patriot League) led by 11 points at 62-51 with 3:01 to play after a Kendall Knorr layup.

    But Bucknell (8-8, 3-2) responded immediately, with Chris Hass' 3-pointer drawing the Bison back to eight. Brian Fitzpatrick and Steven Kaspar both made layups and Hass drilled another trey to draw Bucknell within one with 54 seconds remaining. Meanwhile, Navy was held scoreless during the final moments.

    Navy clinched the game when James Loupos pulled down a rebound of a Haas 3-point attempt as time expired.

    Worth Smith added 13 points for the Midshipmen and Zach Fong had 10.

    Kaspar finished with 12 points and 10 assists for Bucknell. Ben Brackney added 12 as well, while Hass had 11 points and nine rebounds, and Cameron Ayers had 10.
