Associated Press

ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Mackey McKnight scored in the final second of overtime to boost Lehigh over Navy 68-66 Wednesday night, breaking a five-game losing streak and beating Navy for the eighth-straight time.

The Mountain Hawks (9-11, 2-5 Patriot League) had trailed much of the second half, catching up at 47-47 on a Stefan Cvrkalj 3-pointer and forging overtime at 58-58 when Mackey scored with 19 seconds left. Lehigh's Jesse Chuku blocked a Navy shot (he had five of Lehigh's six) as the Midshipmen missed twice in the final four seconds of regulation.

Worth Smith and Zach Fong hit 3-pointers in OT for Navy (7-11, 2-5), the latter forcing a 66-66 tie with 22 seconds to play. After a time out, McKnight dribbled upcourt and, at 6 seconds, drove strong from the right side, banking his winner off the glass.

Smith scored a career-high 26 for Navy and McKnight finished with 11 for Lehigh.
