Fueled by its 3-point shooting and Navy's shooting drought, Colgate erased a first half deficit to pull out a 59-46 win Sunday in Annapolis, Md.
The Midshipmen (8-20, 2-10 Patriot League) scored the first nine points of the game and took at 27-22 lead over the Raiders (11-18, 5-7) at halftime.
However, the Raiders opened the second half with an 18-2 run, with 12 of those points on 3-pointers. Pat Moore converted three of those 3-pointers and had 10 of his team-high 13 points during the run as the Raiders opened up a 40-29 lead with just over 12 minutes left.
The Midshipmen went ice cold for much of the second half, making just one field goal in the first 13:30.
Clayton Graham added 10 points for the Raiders, eight of those coming in just seven first half minutes, while Luke Roh had 12 rebounds and six assists.
Tilman Dunbar led Navy with 13 points, nine of those in the first half, while Worth Smith added 10.
Colgate made just 33 percent of its first half shots, but rallied to make 40 percent overall, including 13 of 29 in the second half.
Navy, which shot 42 percent in the first half, made just six second-half shots and converted on just 17 of 43 overall (33 percent).
The Raiders held the rebounding edge, 42-28.
