American U. beats Army 58-34
WASHINGTON (AP)—Nick Hendra scored 14 points and added seven rebounds to lead American University in a 58-34 win over Army on Wednesday night.

Hendra, who was averaging 5.6 points per game coming into the contest, came off the bench and shot 6-for-11 from the field and 2-for-4 from beyond the arc.
Derrick Mercer added 13 points with eight rebounds and five assists for the Eagles, and has now scored in double-figures in seven of American’s last eight games.
Cleveland Richard led Army with nine points.
American shot 7-for-18 from 3-point range, and outrebounded Army 38-19.
