ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Murphy Burnatowski scored 29 points as Colgate led wire-to-wire in a 70-56 Patriot League win over Navy on Saturday night.
The Raiders (8-13, 2-3), coming off a 93-90 overtime win over Army that snapped a three-game skid, jumped out to a 20-4 lead.
After Colgate took a 37-25 advantage into halftime, Worth Smith opened the second half with nine straight points for Navy (7-14, 1-4). Although his first basket, a 3-pointer, got the Midshipmen within nine, they could get no closer.
The Raiders led by 25 before Navy's 14-3 run closed the game.
Colgate shot 50 percent from the field (26 of 52) thanks to Burnatowski who was 11 of 17 and hit 3 of 7 from long range.
The Midshipmen shot just 31.5 percent (17 of 54), but made 17 of 25 from the free-throw line.
Smith's 13 points led Navy, which has lost eight of its last nine.
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
Andrew White III will return to the Nebraska men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.
