LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Kimbal Mackenzie had 18 points and seven assists to help Bucknell close out the regular season with an 82-60 win over Navy on Saturday.

Bucknell went on a 30-1 run — which included 25 straight points — in the first half and led 45-21 at halftime after holding Navy to 21 percent shooting.

Ben Oberfield, a senior who has been injured all season, got the start to take the opening tip . He tapped it out of bounds — as Navy didn't jump — and left to standing ovation on senior day.

Bruce Moore added 14 points with seven rebounds for Bucknell (23-8, 15-3 Patriot League) and Zach Thomas chipped in 12 points.

Bucknell will be the No. 1 seed in the Patriot League Tournament, which starts on Tuesday. The top four seeds will host games in the quarterfinals on Thursday.

Hasan Abdullah led Navy (15-15, 10-8) with 18 points after making 8 of 11 free throws.
