    NEWARK, Del. (AP) -- Andre Ingram scored 20 points to lead American University to a 64-58 win against Delaware on Sunday.

    The Eagles (6-4) shot 50 percent from the field and went 4-of-6 on 3-point shots in the second half to overcome a 32-27 halftime deficit.

    Harding Nana scored 19 of his game-high 24 points in the first half to stake Delaware (4-8) to a five-point halftime lead, but American took control five minutes into the second half.

    Ingram scored 17 of his team-high 20 points in the first half. Rulon Washington added 14 points, but the Hens got just 20 points from the rest of its lineup as they shot just 28 percent from the field in the second half, including just 4-of-15 from beyond the 3-point line.

    American also got 13 points from Matej Cresnik, 10 points from forward Patrick Okpwae, six points and a team-high nine rebounds from Jason Thomas, and seven assists and six rebounds from guard Linas Lekavicius.

    Led by Nana, the Hens jumped out to an 8-0 lead in the first four minutes and took a 17-7 advantage when Nana converted two straight 3-pointers with 12:54 left.

    American took control in the opening five minutes of the second half to tie the game at 39-39 with 15:07 left on a 3-pointer by Lekavicius and then scored the next five points as part of a 17-7 run to take the lead for good at 44-39 with 12:56 remaining.
