    PHILADEPHIA (AP) -- Eugene Myatt scored 36 points, including 21 in the second half, as Howard upset Penn 80-65 in a Philly Classic preliminary round game on Saturday.

    Myatt hit on 13 of 17 shots, including 5-of-5 from 3-point range. Kyle Riley added 19 points for Howard (1-2), which lost its first two games by a combined total of 109 points.

    Brian Grandieri had 17 points for the Quakers (0-3).

    The Bison led 49-38 with 14:45 left to play before Penn rallied to within 62-57 at the 4:51 mark. A layup by Kandi Mukole then started an 11-3 Howard run, capped by a Myatt jumper, and the Quakers never threatened again.

    The game was the first meeting ever between Penn and Howard, which was beaten by Duquesne 129-59 and by Virginia 92-53.
