Baltimore Sun - - NBA COLLEGE BASKETBALL - — James Pe­ters, Bal­ti­more Sun Me­dia Group

Will Dar­ley scored 24 points and made 5 of 6 3-point­ers, Jar­ius Lyles scored 23 points and had six as­sists, and the UMBC men’s bas­ket­ball team held off host UMES, 77-73, on Sun­day.

Lead­ing 35-32 at half­time, the Retriev­ers led by as many as nine points in the sec­ond half be­fore the Hawks made a run. Tyler Jones’ 3-pointer with 9 sec­onds left cut the mar­gin to 75-71 and UMES was forced to foul. Lyles sealed the game with a free throw.

Arkel La­mal had eight re­bounds for UMBC (2-0), which was held to 37 per­cent shoot­ing from the field (22-for-60) but made 25 of 34 free throws (74 per­cent).

Jones scored 28 points on 11-for-14 shoot­ing for UMES (0-2). Bakari Copeland scored 11 points and had 12 re­bounds, Lo­gan McIntosh added 13 points and nine as­sists, and Don­tae Cald­well had 10 points.

NAVY 74, WASH­ING­TON COL­LEGE 47: Tim Abruzzo led all scor­ers with a ca­reer-high 21 points and the host Mid­ship­men shot 51 per­cent from the field in a vic­tory over the Divi­sion III Shore­men.

Wash­ing­ton Col­lege avoided a loss — Divi­sion III pro­grams can­not play of­fi­cial games un­til Tues­day — and was able to pre­pare for its sea­son against a much taller Navy squad that out­re­bounded the Shore­men 44-17. Wash­ing­ton Col­lege’s full-court press, how­ever, was able to force 23 turnovers by Navy.

Nourse Fox made three 3-point­ers and scored 13 points for the Mids (1-1), who were with­out starter Shawn An­der­son, who sat out with a lower leg in­jury.

TOW­SON 67, GE­ORGE MA­SON 61: Wil­liam Adala Moto and Mike Morsell com­bined to score 43 points, and the vis­it­ing Tigers (1-0) used a late surge to beat the Pa­tri­ots (0-1) on Satur­day night.

Ge­orge Ma­son held a 31-30 lead at half­time, but Ed­die Keith II’s jumper with 8:29 left gave Tow­son the lead for good, 47-46.
