Men's Basketball Tops Holy Cross for Senior Day Win
The Army West Point Men's Basketball team turned to its two senior captains and they delivered on senior night to help propel the Black Knights to a 67-61 home win over Holy Cross on Wednesday.
With the win versus the Crusaders (3-27, 2-15 Patriot League), Army (15-13, 10-7 Patriot League) not only tied the program's win record in Patriot League play, but also locked up a top-four seed in the quarterfinal round of the league tournament. The Black Knights are now guaranteed a home game on March 5 with the opponent still to be determined.
