    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Andre Ingram scored 21 points and American took control in the second half to beat Howard 72-60 Monday night for its third straight victory.

    Brayden Billbe added 14 for the Eagles (3-6), who made 25 of 30 free throws and never let the Bison (1-5) get closer than four points down the stretch. American outrebounded Howard 38-27.

    Darryl Hudson and Will Gant each scored 13 for the Bison, who shot 18 percent in the second half after hitting 52 percent of their shots in the first.

    After trailing by as many as 10 before halftime, the Eagles opened a 43-36 lead with a 9-0 run early in the second half, sparked by Arvydas Eitutavicius' 3-pointer. American pushed the lead to 10 several times before Ingram's late 3-pointer made it 65-53.

    The Eagles lead the series between the two Washington schools 8-2.
