ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- Murphy Burnatowski scored 29 points as Colgate led wire-to-wire in a 70-56 Patriot League win over Navy on Saturday night.

The Raiders (8-13, 2-3), coming off a 93-90 overtime win over Army that snapped a three-game skid, jumped out to a 20-4 lead.

After Colgate took a 37-25 advantage into halftime, Worth Smith opened the second half with nine straight points for Navy (7-14, 1-4). Although his first basket, a 3-pointer, got the Midshipmen within nine, they could get no closer.

The Raiders led by 25 before Navy's 14-3 run closed the game.

Colgate shot 50 percent from the field (26 of 52) thanks to Burnatowski who was 11 of 17 and hit 3 of 7 from long range.

The Midshipmen shot just 31.5 percent (17 of 54), but made 17 of 25 from the free-throw line.

Smith's 13 points led Navy, which has lost eight of its last nine.
