Navy guard Kendall Knorr set a career high with 17 points and scored the final seven points of the game as the Midshipmen overcame a nine-point first-half deficit to storm past Maryland Eastern-Shore 67-59 on Tuesday in Annapolis.

UMES led 28-19 with 5:09 to play in the first half, but Navy (4-3) closed on a 14-4 run to take a 33-32 lead into the break. It was 43-42 Navy with 10 minutes to go, but the Midshipmen went on an 8-0 burst to build a cushion.

The Hawks (2-3) cut the margin to three on a jumper from guard Hakeem Baxter with 1:02 to play that made it 60-57, but Knorr knocked down a three-pointer as the shot clock expired to push the margin back to six. Knorr iced the game with four free throws down the stretch.

Navy guard Tilman Dunbar scored 15 points for the Midshipmen, and forward Worth Smith added 14 points and nine rebounds. The Midshipmen held UMES to 33 percent shooting from the field and out-rebounded the Hawks 40-35.
