No. 5 Georgetown Rallies to Down No. 9 Navy, 9-7

Navy had just one serious threat in the last three minutes, but a Dingman shot on the doorstep went just left and Georgetown ran out the clock for a second-round date with top-seeded and undefeated Virginia next Saturday at Towson.

The Mids were outshot by the Hoyas, 40-28, and went just 19-28 on clearing attempts. Navy also had 25 turnovers.

Dingman led the Mids with four points (3 g, 1 a) and Birsner added three (2 g, 1 a). Steve Looney was credited with a pair of assists on the day. Russell turned aside 10 shots and he ended his career with a 37-9 career record and an NCAA career record 6.28 GAA. Birsner, meanwhile, finished his career with the sixth most points in Navy history (154) and the fourth most assists (105).

The loss ends the career of a Navy senior class that posted a 44-18 record in four years, the most wins of any Navy class in school history. The seniors appeared in three NCAA Tournaments, advancing to the 2004 NCAA title game and the quarterfinals in 2005.
