ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) Jacob Iati scored a career-high 26 points, hitting six 3-pointers, as Albany (N.Y.) defeated Navy 71-61 Friday night.
The Great Danes (10-3), coming off a 59-57 loss to Quinnipiac on Dec. 21 that snapped a six-game winning streak, posted their 10th nonconference victory - the most before conference play in the school's Division I era.
Tied at 11 with 12:42 left in the first half, Albany launched a 12-0 run, including two 3-pointers by Iati and one by Peter Hooley. The Midshipmen (6-8) trimmed the deficit to 25-19 at the 3:05 mark, but the Great Danes closed out the half on an 11-5 run.
After Albany opened the second half with a 14-7 burst, Navy again got within six, 51-45, with 7:29 left, but could get no closer as Luke Devlin scored 11 of his 13 points in a 20-8 Great Danes run.
Tilman Dunbar's 17 points led Navy.
The Jacksonville Jaguars 2019 regular season has not gone according to plan.
In Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs, starting quarterback Nick Foles broke his clavicle and was placed on IR, and following a Week 2 loss to the Houston Texans, the team's star defensive back Jalen Ramsey has reportedly requested a trade.
Ramsey and head coach Doug Marrone got into it verbally during the loss to Houston and according to multiple reports, the fractured relationship could expedite a potential trade.
The Jaguars are reportedly asking for at least one first-round pick in return for the two-time Pro Bowl cornerback.
It's worth noting that Ramsey's agent, David Mulugheta, also represents Redskins Dwayne Haskins and Landon Collins. Collins tweeted at Ramsey back in April, jokingly recruiting Ramsey to D.C. after Jaguars' VP of Football Operations Tom Coughlin called out Ramsey for missing voluntary offseason workouts and the latter responded.
Ramsey, who was the fifth pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, is currently looking for a new contract. He is currently in the fourth year of his rookie deal and the Jaguars have picked up his fifth-year option in 2020.

Davey Martinez remained in Washington for further medical testing instead of traveling to St. Louis, the Nationals announced Monday. Bench coach Chip Hale will manage instead.
Martinez left Sunday’s series finale against the Atlanta Braves in the sixth inning because he was not feeling well. He went to a local hospital for further examinations upon the recommendation from Nationals medical staff.
Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo told reporters in St. Louis on Monday that Martinez had chest pains during Sunday’s game. He underwent a minor heart procedure called a cardiac catheterization. Rizzo said Martinez is expected to rejoin the team once his blood work comes back and he is cleared to travel.
“This is something we have to take care of,” Rizzo told reporters. “We are certainly, when we get all the results back, we will have a game plan in place and get him back here as soon as we can."
Hale, 54, joined the Nationals’ staff as bench coach when Martinez was hired. The Baltimore Orioles interviewed him this offseason for their open managerial position. Hale has replaced Martinez following each of Martinez’s ejections this season.
Hale managed the Arizona Diamondbacks from 2015-16, where his teams went a combined 148-176. He’s also been the third base coach for the New York Mets, the bench coach for the Oakland A’s, and even a Triple-A manager. Prior, Hale was a part-time major leaguer for seven seasons.
Tim Bogar will slide into the bench coach role. Assistant hitting coach Joe Dillon will coach first base. The Nationals do not plan to add coaches to the staff during Martinez’s absence.
Though he is not present, Martinez continues to influence the day. Hale said Martinez texted the lineup to him.
The Nationals open a three-game series Monday night in St. Louis. They have a 1 ½-game lead for home-field in the Wild-Card Game. They are just 2 ½ games in front of Milwaukee for a postseason berth. Just 14 games remain in the season.
