Williams and Cole lead Howard past Coppin State
BALTIMORE (AP) Charles Williams scored 29 points and RJ Cole had 25 points and 10 assists as Howard beat Coppin State 78-71 on Thursday night.
After leading by as many as 12, the Bison (10-22, 7-9 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) needed a late run to hold off Coppin State.
Howard led by four at halftime after erasing and early lead for the Eagles (5-11, 5-26) with a 26-9 run.
After the break, the Bison gradually pushed their lead to 12 before an 11-0 Coppin State run closed it to within one. Minutes later, a Lamar Morgan layup and dunk put the Eagles up by three. Cole then tied it with a 3-pointer, sparking a 17-7 run in which the Bison shot 6 of 7 from the field, while the Eagles managed to hit just 2 of 8.
Karonn Davis had 28 points, 9 assists, and 8 boards for the Eagles, who dropped their fifth straight.
