CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Tommy Funk had 16 points and six assists, Jordan Fox added 13 points and Army defeated UMBC 81-70 at the Bulldog Bash on Friday night.

The Black Knights (4-2) will play Marist for the championship on Saturday while the Retrievers (4-4) meet host The Citadel in the consolation game.

UMBC led 43-41 in a wild first half that saw the Retrievers make 8 of 14 3-pointers and Army go 7 of 15 from distance, with both teams shooting about 50 percent overall. But in the second half, Army continued to shoot well from close range and the Retrievers cool off significantly.

Army broke away from a tie at 50 with a 9-0 run, highlighted by a Luke Morrison 3-pointer. The lead was at seven before a 10-3 run that made it 78-64 with 3:16 to play. Ishmail Jabbie made four straight free throws for UMBC but John Emezie hit a 3-pointer with 42 seconds left to secure the win.

The Black Knights only made 2 of 9 from distance after the break but was 14 of 27 overall, finishing at 53 percent (29 of 53). UMBC only made 6 of 22 baskets, 3 of 11 behind the arc, to finish at 40 percent (21 of 53).

Joe Sherbune had 17 points for the Terries and Lamar had 16 with nine rebounds.
