LEXINGTON, Va. (AP) -- Matt Coward scored 18 points and had eight rebounds as VMI broke a 13-game losing streak by defeating Longwood 65-52 Thursday night.

Fred Robinson was perfect off the bench, going 4-for-4 and sinking all four free throws for 13 points for the Keydets (6-15), and Reggie Williams added 10.

Michael Jefferson had 12 and Chad Kosmo added 11 points for Longwood (1-24), which suffered its 13th consecutive loss. And despite shooting only 33.8 percent on the night, Longwood took advantage of VMI's 20 turnovers, scoring 14 on Keydet missteps.

VMI led by as many as 16 in the second half, but an 8-0 run cut the lead down to 44-36 with 13:38 remaining. Longwood cut it down to eight only once more, on a 3-pointer from Husein Pistoljevic with 38 seconds left.
