American U advances to semis; beats Navy 62-60

Mar 4, 2010 - 2:53 AM WASHINGTON(AP) -- Stephen Lumpkins scored a career-high 29 points and American University held on to defeat Navy 62-60 on Wednesday in the quarterfinals of the Patriot League tournament.

Nick Hendra added 12 points for fourth-seeded American (11-19), which will travel to top-seeded Lehigh for Sunday's semifinal.

Lumpkins also tied a career-high with 15 rebounds for his third straight double-double, helping the Eagles improve to 9-0 in the conference's quarterfinal round.

Chris Harris scored 20 points for fifth-seeded Navy (13-17), which ended its season with four straight losses. Jordan Sugars added 13 points for the Midshipmen, who trailed 59-51 with 1:11 left but closed it to 61-60 on Romeo Garcia's 3-pointer with 7 seconds left.

American hit just three of its last nine free throws. But after Daniel Munoz's free-throw miss, Garcia's half-court runner at the buzzer fell well short.
