At the half -- AU 42, Navy 35

Key stats: American holds a 17-11 edge in rebounds, including 6 -3 on the offensive glass. AU also is shooting 56 percent (14-25) from the floor.

Let's play horse: Why not just let Matej Cresnik and Greg Sprink settle this one in a driveway. At the intermission: Cresnik -- 5-of-7 including 4-of-6 from 3-point range and 6-of-7 at the line. Already a season high 20 points, just 4 shy of his career best.

Sprink is 4-for-5, 3-of-4 at the arc, 5-of-6 FT for 16 points.

Masked man: Andre Ingram showed up in pregame wearing a clear plastic mask to protect a broken nose suffered in practice. Reports say it was broken by teammate Travis Lay, a 6-5 freshman who does not see much time for AU. That promoted one press row wag to remark:"Always nice when the last guy on upur bench breaks your superstar's nose."

The impact? Hard to say. Ingram is 1-of-5 at the half. But he has never shot well in Sojka. Earlier this season against Bucknell he was 2-for-12 here and last year he went 5-16. Combined 2.5 game totals: 8-of-33. That ouch you just heard was not just Ingram's nose.

More after the game.
