Army Sports Update: January 4th to 10th
Despite Covid, Army competed in several sports, including Men’s and Women’s Basketball, Ice Hockey, and Wrestling this past week!
ICYMI: Congrats to Amadeo West for being selected to the @ShrineBowl‼️
The game was originally scheduled to be played in late January, but has been canceled. A great honor for Amadeo after an impressive senior season.

Men’s Basketball (6-3, 2-2 PL)
The men’s team started off Patriot League play by splitting a pair with Colgate last weekend. They split again versus Holy Cross this past weekend as well. Josh Caldwell led the team with 20 points on Saturday, while Alex King had 21 on Sunday.
Comeback win at Holy Cross secured!

Women’s Basketball (4-5, 1-3 PL)
The Army women dropped a pair to Holy Cross this past weekend. The big story, though, was Coach Dave Magarity facing off against his daughter Maggie in the first ever father-daughter coaching match-up in Division 1 history.
Maggie bested her father this time around, but the Black Knights will face Holy Cross again in early February.
Ice Hockey (2-4-0, 2-4-0 AHA)
Army dropped two to Atlantic Hockey’s best, American International (AIU), at Tate Rink on Wednesday and Thursday, falling to 1-4-0 on the season. Thursday’s game went to overtime, but AIU scored on a 4-3 power play just two and a half minutes into extra time.
On Sunday, Army traveled to Springfield, Massachusetts, and finally won one against the Yellowjackets. That game was the fourth of a planned five-game series against AIU and Army’s first win. The game marked the 1000th victory recorded by a Riley head coach at Army, combined between Jack, Rob and Brian.
A milestone 70 years in the making!

Wrestling #24 NWCA Coaches Poll (0-0)
Army Wrestling faced off against Long Island University in their season opener. Team scores were not calculated, but Army won all seven individual match-ups versus LIU wrestlers. As has been the case for the last several years, Army Wrestling remains ranked among the very best programs in the country.
