In a sold-out, nationally televised matchup at West Point, Army and Navy suited up for their annual men’s and women’s basketball doubleheader Saturday, Jan. 10.
In the men’s game, the Army Black Knights (10-5) battled a relentless Navy (7-9) defense, losing 75-66 to the Midshipmen.
In the women’s game, Navy held off a slowing starting, strong Army team to close out the sweep, winning 53-50.
In both games, all teams played their hearts out in front of the record sold-out crowd that included Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, as well as Basketball Hall of Famer and CBS commentator Reggie Miller.
