Colgate routs cold-shooting Binghamton 74-47

HAMILTON, N.Y. (AP) Murphy Burnatowski scored 23 points as Colgate snapped a six-game losing streak with a 74-47 nonconference victory over Binghamton on Friday night.

Brandon James added 12 points for the Raiders (4-9), who shot 50.9 percent overall (27 of 53). Their 39.3 percent shooting from 3-point range (11 of 28) was higher than the 27.9 percent (17 of 61) that the Bearcats (2-10) shot overall.

Colgate, which led 40-25 at halftime, had an 11-0 run and three separate 10-0 runs.

The Raiders started the second half with one of their 10-0 runs and led by as many as 30 points, 72-42, with 3:32 remaining.

Binghamton, which hadn't played since Dec. 11, lost its sixth in a row.

Jimmy Gray's 12 points paced the scoring for the Bearcats, while Roland Brown and Jordan Reed scored 10 points each. Reed also had 11 rebounds, giving the freshman his sixth double-double this season.

Vernon Davis pulls off memorable proposal in Ocean City

Vernon Davis has long been a fan favorite in the D.C. area since his University of Maryland days. The 34-year-old is almost always well-dressed and respectful to the media. 

More recently, he has been outspoken about his interest in acting after his football career. A true renaissance man who just so happens to be a force in the National Football League. 

In April, NBC Sports Washington ran into Davis at the Team USA Awards where he was serving as guest speaker. 

He took his smooth nature to a whole new level Tuesday while vacationing in Ocean City, Md. with his girlfriend Kayla. 

Dressed in all white on the beach, Davis proposed in an epic way. 

The best motivation I ever had. #shesmyrock

Stephen Strasburg returns to Nats lineup after DL stint

Stephen Strasburg returns to Nats lineup after DL stint

Friday night marks the first second-half game of Major League Baseball's 162-game season. 

The Washington Nationals begin 5.5 games out of the first-place Phillies and host the second-place Braves for a three-game series before traveling to Milwaukee. 

One big piece to Dave Martinez's staff who has been missing since June 8 is Stephen Strasburg. The right-hander was activated from the DL and will start on the mound Friday night. 

Ryan Zimmerman was also activated but is not in Martinez's starting lineup. 

Prior to experiencing inflammation in his right shoulder during a June 8 start that forced him out of the game early, Strasburg saw flashes of dominance throughout his 13 starts owning a 3.46 ERA with 10.6 strikeouts per nine innings. 

Zimmerman hasn't played since May 9 due to a strained right oblique. With the emergence of Matt Adams, it will be interesting to see how Martinez uses both guys throughout the summer. 

Here is a look at Friday night's official lineup: 

According to Byron Kerr, Zimmerman is still happy to be back, despite not being in the starting lineup. 

Catch the Nationals hosting the Braves Friday at 7:05 p.m. on MASN2.
