    DOVER, Del. (AP) -- Roy Bright and Jahsha Bluntt each scored 14 points, and Delaware State held Bethune-Cookman to 20.8 percent shooting in the second half of a 47-40 victory Monday night.

    Darrin Shine added 11 points for the Hornets (18-11, 15-2 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference), who had already wrapped up the MEAC regular-season title.

    Reserve Aaron Nelson scored 12 points for the Wildcats (8-19, 5-11), who shot 52.6 percent in the first half and led 22-21 at halftime.

    Delaware State opened the second half with a 14-0 run to take control. Bethune-Cookman didn't score until Josh Cummings hit a free throw with 11:18 remaining.

    But Delaware State never got hot from the floor, shooting 34.1 percent -- including 5-of-23 from 3-point range. Bethune-Cookman rallied and got within 43-40 on a 3-pointer by Jimmy Hudson with 46 seconds left.

    Two free throws by Shine and a breakaway dunk by Bluntt sealed the victory.

    The Hornets converted 14 Wildcat turnovers into 18 points.
