Army Outlasts Men's Basketball In West Point
Jan. 5, 2014
WEST POINT, N.Y. - A Dylon Cormier 3-pointer with five minutes remaining cut the U.S. Military Academy's one-time 13-point lead to one, but the Black Knights held off the Greyhounds for a 91-82 Patriot League win on Sunday afternoon in Christl Arena.
Cormier, who scored a game-high 27 points hit his only three of the game, out of six attempts, with the shot, but it pulled Loyola (6-7 overall, 1-1 Patriot League) to within 73-72.
Army (6-7, 2-0) had led by 13, 58-45, at 16:01 on a Larry Toomey tip=in, but Loyola chipped away at the deficit.
Down 64-53 with 11:53 on the clock, Loyola went on an 11-2 run over nearly five minutes, and Cormier's layup at 7:15 made it a two-point game, 66-64.
Army responded 10 seconds later, however, as Tanner Plomb converted a traditional 3-point play, making a layup and a free throw.
Cormier contributed a pair of free throws on Loyola's next possession, but Dylan Cox hit a runner with 6:03 left, making it 71-66 Army.
Eric Laster banked in a three from the top of the perimeter for Loyola, and after a Kyle Wilson jumper at 5:29, Cormier hit his three to cut the Black Knights' deficit to one.
Later in the half, Josh Herbeck hit a three for Army with the shot clock winding down, pushing its advantage to six, but Franz Rassman converted a layup and free throw at 1:44, and it was an 80-77 Army lead.
The Black Knights came back with seven of the next eight points, as Mo Williams gave them a nine-point advantage with 24 ticks on the clock.
Five Army players scored 10 or more, led by Wilson's team-high 18. Cox tallied 17, and Kevin Ferguson scored 15 and had nine rebounds.
R.J. Williams scored a career-high 14 points for the Greyhounds, making 5-of-9 shots; he also had six steals. Rassman finished with 12 points and eight rebounds, and Laster had 13 points.
Cormier grabbed a team-high nine rebounds, seven on the offensive glass, and had three steals and three assists in addition to his 27 points.
Loyola continues Patriot League action on Wednesday, January 8, in Washington, D.C., against American University.
