BALTIMORE -- Rodney Elliot scored 21 points in leading UMBC to a 63-48 win over Navy on Monday night.
The first half ended with Navy leading 21-20 as both teams had a hard time getting the ball into the basket. But UMBC broke away near the end of the second half going up 50-37 and Navy failed to respond.
The Retrievers sent the Midshipmen to the free throw line only once in the game, while themselves hitting 9 of 15 attempts. Navy's dismal shooting continued into the second half making just 31 percent of their attempts from the field in the game.
