ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -Kaleo Kina equaled a season-high with 23 points to lead four players in double figures as Navy routed New Jersey Institute of Technology 84-55 Wednesday night.
Greg Sprink scored 19 points, while Chris Harris was 5 for 6 from 3-point range in netting 18 for Navy (6-8), which has won three straight. Freshman Romeo Garcia contributed a career-high 10 points for the Midshipmen, who registered their most lopsided victory of the season.
Adam Teague added eight points for the Mids, who shot a sizzling 55.6 percent (30 for 54) from the field. The Midshipmen forced 23 turnovers and limited the visiting Highlanders to 40 percent shooting.
After struggling to score most of the season, Navy has suddenly become an offensive juggernaut, averaging nearly 85 points over the last three games. The Midshipmen have shot 49 percent or better from the field in five of their last six games after managing to do so just twice in their initial eight games.
Nesho Milosevic, a 6-foot-8, 245-pound forward from Montenegro, had his way inside in totaling game-highs of 25 points and 10 rebounds for winless NJIT (0-16), which never led in the game.
Kina drained a 3-pointer, was fouled and made the free throw for a rare four-point play to spark a strong run in the final five minutes as Navy took a 45-31 at halftime. The Highlanders scored the opening basket of the second half to get within 12, but would get no closer the rest of the way as the Mids steadily pulled away.
