RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Malcolm Armstead hit an 18-foot jumper from the top off the key with 3.8 seconds to play Tuesday night, lifting Wichita State to a 53-51 victory over Virginia Commonwealth.
Cleanthony Early added 13 points and Carl Hall 12 for the Shockers (2-0), who beat VCU for the first time in three tries. The Rams (1-1) knocked them out in the second round of the NCAA tournament last season, and beat them on last-second free throws two years ago during the regular season.
Juvonte Reddic scored 22 points to lead the Rams (1-1). He had two free throw attempts with five-tenths of a second left that would have tied it, but the first spun out. He missed the second intentionally but was called for a lane violation.
Darius Theus added 15 for the Rams, including a 3-pointer that tied it at 51 with 26.6 seconds to play.
At the end of the day, the Army-Navy rivalry is one of respect. With that being said, that doesn't mean Navy and their fans can't poke a little fun at Army for losing 14-straight games in the rivalry.
Game over. Flawless victory.

President-elect Donald Trump plans to attend Saturday's Army-Navy game at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Md.
Soon to be Commander-In-Chief of all branches of the military, Trump will split his time between the two sidelines, as is customary.
Past presidents have attended the longstanding rivalry game, including President Barack Obama in 2011.
According to ESPN, Navy has beaten Army the last three times presidents have been in the audience. Then again, Navy has won the last 14 consecutive contests anyway.
