    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Eugene Myatt scored 20 points, Kandi Mukole added 17 and Howard came back from a 17-point second-half deficit to beat La Salle 69-63 Tuesday night.

    Howard (2-2) was down 47-30 with 16:24 left, but pulled ahead with an 18-5 run over the final 5:10. The Bison took their first lead, 60-59, on Randy Hampton's inside basket with about three minutes left.
