Anchors no more

Some familiar names helped Navy win the the Armed Forces Basketball Championship late last month.

According to the Air Force Times:
Behind the strong play of all-tournament selections Francis Ebong and Taj Matthews, the Navy won its final three games to capture the tournament for the first time since 1996.
Recent Navy grad George O'Garro was also a member of that team.

Ebong, who scored 14 points and grabbed 17 rebounds in the gold-medal win over defending champion Army, and Matthews were both named to the All-Armed Forces team that will compete in next month’s International Miltary Sports Council (CISM) tournament and the Supreme Headquarters, Allied Powers Europe tournament in December.

Interestingly, as best we can tell from comparing all-time letter winner lists in media guides to the roster, none of the other Army or Navy players named to the All-Armed Forces team played at either of the academies.
