THE ARMY-AMERICAN SERIES

LAST TIME OUT
No. 2 Army failed to reach the 50-point mark for the first time this season, but overcame the low scoring output and a sub-35 percent shooting night (34.8 percent) to collect a 49-45 Patriot League Quarterfinal victory over No. 7 Boston University on March 6. After coming back from a nine-point deficit in the first half, the Black Knights held a slight lead for most of the second frame, until the Terriers tied the contest at 45 apiece with 1:30 remaining. Sophomore Kelsey Minato went 4-of-4 from the free-throw stripe in the final 28 seconds, while the Army defense held Boston University scoreless to seal the win for the hosts. Minato finished with a game-high 26 points, going 7-of-13 from the field and 10-of-10 from the foul line, while senior Jen Hazlett reached her sixth double-double of the year with 11 points and 11 rebounds. Sophomore Jean Parker (five points, three rebounds) and freshman Danielle Failor (three points, seven rebounds) provided contributions off the bench.
