Navy Midshipmen hang a near-record rout on Holy Cross, 69-34

Posted: Updated:

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - Cam Davis and George Kiernan combined to score 32 points and Navy held Patriot League rival Holy Cross to the second fewest point total allowed in program history, posting a 69-34 victory on Wednesday night.

Matt Faw's free throw with 16 seconds left allowed the Crusaders to escape the all-time low point total allowed set by Penn State on February 9, 1947 in the Midshipmen's 52-33 victory. The 35-point margin of victory is Navy's largest in series history.

Davis scored a career-high 18 points in his first career start for Navy (16-10, 7-6). Kiernan added 14 points and Bryce Dulin 12.

Holy Cross (8-16, 5-8) managed just 12 field goals on 43 attempts (27.9 percent), the fewest made against Navy this season. The Crusaders hit just three 3-pointers on 25 attempts (12 percent), the fewest made by a Navy opponent this season. Jehyve Floyd led Holy Cross with nine points.
