2013-14 Preview: Navy Midshipmen
Midshipmen return most of rotation -- but that might be a bad thing
2012-13: 8-23 (2-12 Patriot League)
In-conference offense: 0.84 points per possession (8th)
In-conference defense: 1.06 points allowed per possession (7th)
Navy managed to steal two Patriot wins in 2012-13, but the team actually finished with a worse efficiency margin than it posted during its winless 2011-12 conference season. The Midshipmen allowed opponents to shoot better than 51 percent on 2-point attempts while making just 39 percent of their own shots from inside the arc.
