Navy’s post too much for Goucher in 76-47 win

Tom Lacey led Navy with 13 points and 11 rebounds against Goucher.

A 12-3 run to start the second half followed by a 4-0 run not long after helped the Navy Midshipman pull away from the Goucher Gophers on Sunday afternoon for a 76-47 victory. Tom Leady and Will Kelly each posted double-doubles against Goucher as the Midshipmen evened their record a 2-2. Lacy led the team with 13 points and 11 rebounds while Kelly had 10 points and 10 rebounds in the game. Shawn Anderson also scored 13 points in the game.

Goucher put up a strong fight in the first half and regularly had a lead through the first 10 minutes of the game. However, after Bryce Dulin got inside the paint and sunk a layup to give Navy a 23-21 lead, the Mids would never give it up.

They led by only two points heading into halftime, 26-24, but ended up out-shooting the Gophers them 51.4% to 34.8% in the second half and ran away for the win.

Goucher’s Jesse Mondry nailed a three to make it just a 30-27 game early in the second half but Navy scored five-straight baskets in the paint to open up a 13-point lead. A 3-pointer by Kevin Miles cut it to 10 points but after exchanging some free throws the Midshipment went on a 14-point run to take a commanding 24-point lead with 11:01 remaining in the game.

From then on Navy had an answer for everything their Division III opponent tried to do and worked up to a 31-point lead before Chris Outing hit a jumper with six seconds remaining in the game.

Goucher just couldn’t match up with Navy inside. Navy out-scored Goucher 48-6 in the paint, out-rebounded them 50-21 and that led to a 20-2 differential on second-chance points.

Miles led Goucher with 14 points as he hit four 3-point shots.

Navy will not return home for a game until December 14, but will play locally at UMBC on Wednesday at 7 pm. The Gophers will return to playing Division III competition next weekend when they travel to Salem, Va for the Turkey Weekend Tournament. They will play Mt. Aloysius in their opening game and an opponent to be determined on Sunday.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
