THE ARMY-LEHIGH SERIES

LAST TIME OUT
Army trailed by 10 points in the first half for the second time this season against Loyola before rallying for a 56-45 overtime victory over the Greyhounds on Feb. 1. The Black Knights outscored the Greyhounds 14-3 during the extra session, while hitting 4-of-5 from the field and 4-of-4 from the free-throw line in the period. Army's defense held Loyola shooters to a 31.3 percentage from the field, and limited the Greyhounds to just eight points in a paint, marking the lowest total Army has allowed all season. Minato netted 18 points while adding five rebounds, three assists and three steals, while extending her double-digit scoring streak to 37 games. Minato scored seven of Army's 14 points in overtime, including a three-pointer and four free-throws.
