Howard was led by Shy Odom, who recorded 22 points and 10 boards. As a team, the Bison shot 26-of-66 from the field and 6-of-24 from three. That netted out to an average of 1.03 points per possession, which wasn’t enough to win.
Both teams face their next test on February 25. Morgan State takes on Delaware State, while Howard squares off with a North Carolina Central side riding high from a victory in its last outing. The Bears will look to earn another win on their home court. On the other side, the Bison will hit the road once again.
