Statistics 1 2 OT Total

Howard dominated South Carolina State in the 2023 MBB MEAC Championship in a 91-55 rout on Wednesday evening. The Bison had the upper hand in this one, going into half with a 17-point lead and outscoring the Bulldogs 53-34 in the final 20 minutes.

Bryce Harris scored 20 points and grabbed seven rebounds to lead the way for Howard. Harris was just a cog in a complete offensive performance for the Bison. The team shot 51% from the field while scoring 1.19 points per possession. They put a particular emphasis on generating easy looks close to the hoop, shooting 27-of-48 on two-pointers, including 25-of-39 in the paint.

Cameron Jones scored 14 points while Lesown Hallums added another 10 to lead the way for South Carolina State. As a team, the Bulldogs struggled to get things going offensively, scoring just 0.75 points per possession on 33% shooting from the field. It was a tough day from three-point range. The team’s shooters combined to go just 7-of-29 from deep.

Howard showed once again that they are a dangerous team. It plays next on March 10 in a matchup with TBA. On the other side, South Carolina State fell to 5-26 with the loss. The team will have to wait until next year for redemption, as this was its final game of the season.
