Liberty defeats Navy, 76-58.

The Navy men’s basketball team lost to the Liberty Flames 76-58 Wednesday night at Alumni Hall. With the win, Liberty improves to 6-1 on the season. The Midshipmen drop to 2-4.

Navy was cold from behind the three-point line all night, allowing Liberty maintain a safe lead throughout the game. The Midshipmen did out-block the Flames but Navy could never overcome the turnover difference.

In short, it was a dominating performance by Liberty and a victory well-deserved.
