WEST LONG BRANCH, NJ – Monmouth put three in double figures and never trailed as the Hawks won their seventh game in a row over Army West Point on Saturday night, 81-71. Chris Brady (Greenlawn, NY/Harborfields) added a team-high seven rebounds while Micah Seaborn (Fort Worth, TX/Prime Prep Academy) scored a game-high 20 points.

Monmouth led by eight at the half before jumping to a lead of as many as 20 in the second half. Army cut that lead to seven but the Hawks capped it late with a Brady three-point play and a basket from Seaborn to secure the seventh win in a row.
