The Eagles held Howard to just 29.5 percent shooting (13 of 44) from the field. Howard (5-5, 1-1 MEAC) was topped by James Daniel with 14 points as the only Bison to score in double figures.
It was NCCU’s fifth win in a row.

Tonight’s game will be televised on the Big Ten Network.
The NCCU women will take on Virginia Tech at 7 p.m. tonight (Dec. 10) in Blacksburg and then follow that game up with another ACC opponent – playing at Syracuse at 2 p.m. Sunday.
