HAMILTON, N.Y. (AP) - Damon Sherman-Newsome scored 16 points and Ethan Jacobs added 10 with nine rebounds as seventh-seeded Colgate knocked off No. 10 Navy 57-51 in a first round Patriot League tournament matchup Monday night.

Colgate (13-17) trailed late in the first half, but Jacobs and Luke Roh each made layups and Matt McMullen hit a 3-pointer in between to grab a 27-21 halftime advantage.

Brandon Venturini, who finished with 26 points, hit a 3-pointer early in the second half to pull Navy within three. The Raiders responded as Roh hit two layups and Sherman-Newsome added a jumper to cap a 10-0 run and led 39-26.

Navy (9-21) cut its deficit to two after a jumper by Venturini with 13 seconds left, but Sherman-Newsome and Austin Tillotson each followed with a pair of free throws to seal it.

Colgate will play at No. 2 seed American in the quarterfinals on Wednesday.
