ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Ella Ellis and Kyle Wilson scored 12 points apiece and Army rallied from a seven-point, second-half deficit, then held on to beat Navy 56-55 Saturday, winning its third straight Patriot League road game for the first time in program history.
With the Black Knights (12-13, 5-5) trailing 43-36 with 12:12 left, Ellis hit consecutive 3-pointers, then Wilson scored five points during a 14-5 run pushing Army ahead for good with 7:35 remaining.
However, after Ellis' layup with 2:56 left made it 56-50, the Black Knights couldn't score again.
Tilman Dunbar's jumper and Kendall Knorr's three free throws with 43 seconds left got the Midshipmen within a point. Wilson and Dylan Cox missed layups, giving Navy one final chance, but Dunbar missed a last-second jumper.
Worth Smith's 14 points led the Midshipmen (7-19, 1-9), whose 59-50 win over Army on Jan. 20 was their only victory in 14 contests.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
