Navy overcomes 25-point deficit, beats Bryant 76-74

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) Tom Lacey had 16 points and a career-high 17 rebounds on Tuesday night and Navy erased a 25-point halftime deficit to beat Bryant 76-74.

The 25-point comeback was the largest in Navy's history and the second-largest halftime deficit overcome to win a game in NCAA history. Duke overcame a 56-27 halftime deficit (29 points) to beat Tulane 74-72 on Dec. 30, 1950.

The Midshipmen (4-6) took their first lead of the game at 73-72 on Lacey's basket with 38 seconds left. Bryant retook the lead on Adam Grant's jumper with 26 seconds left. Shawn Anderson then put Navy ahead for good at 13 seconds and added a free throw with 6 seconds left.

Navy trailed 49-24 at the break and opened the second half with 13 straight points and a 25-5 run to get within 54-49 with 12:20 to go.

Bryant (3-7) pushed its lead back to 66-53, but the Midshipmen regained the momentum, closing on a 23-8 run.

George Kiernan had 14 points and Bryce Dulin and Zach Fong added 12 points each for Navy.

Grant had 24 points and Nisre Zouzoua scored 21 for Bryant.
