Navy, which hasn’t won a Patriot League tournament game since 2001, will try to end its losing streak on Wednesday when the third-seeded Midshipmen (19-10, 8-6) host Colgate (9-19, 5-9) in a 7 p.m. game at Alumni Hall. Navy is 12-2 at home this season and 9-1 in tournament play, its lone loss coming last year when as the No. 2 seed, the Midshipmen fell to Bucknell in triple overtime. Navy, which hasn’t hosted tournament games in back-to-back years since 1997 and 1998, swept Colgate this season, winning 75-64 at Colgate and beating the Raiders, 77-64 on Saturday. Before this year, the Midshipmen had lost seven in a row and 12 of their last 13 to Colgate.
