    NEW ORLEANS -- Josh Davis scored 17 points and pulled down a game-high 10 boards as Tulane defeated Navy 51-41 Saturday despite shooting just 27.7 percent (13 of 47) from the field.

    Jordan Callahan chipped in 10 points for Tulane. Ricky Tarrant, the Green Wave's second leading scorer behind Davis, was held to 0-of-9 shooting from the field but hit 8 of 10 free throws.

    Tulane (6-2) held Navy to 5-of-24 shooting in the first half as the Green Wave took a 23-13 lead into intermission. Navy (4-5) shot 52.2 percent (12 of 23) in the second half, cutting the deficit to 32-27 with 11:37 left to play, but would get no closer as Tulane converted 17 second-half free throws.

    Tulane shot 29 free throws, compared to just six for Navy, and outrebounded the Midshipmen 43-27.

    Worth Smith and Brandon Venturini scored 11 points apiece for Navy.
