HAMILTON, New York — Shawn Anderson scored 21 points and Will Kelly added 12 points, eight rebounds and seven blocks as Navy beat Colgate 71-68 in overtime Saturday.

Will Kelly scored the only field goal for Navy (12-5, 3-1 Patriot League) in overtime as the Midshipmen shot 11 for 14 from the free-throw line in the extra session.

Sean O'Brien's 3-pointer with eight seconds left cut Navy's lead to 69-68, but Zach Fong's free throws with six seconds left provided the game's final margin.

Navy took a 40-31 lead on Tim Abruzzo's layup with 12:41 left in regulation. But Austin Tillotson sparked an 18-4 Raiders run in which he scored half the points. Abruzzo's layup with 24 seconds left tied the game at 58.

Tillotson finished with 21 points while Tom Rivard and O'Brien both added 13 for Colgate (6-9, 2-2).
