    WASHINGTON -- Eugene Myatt scored 22 points and Howard benefited from Maryland-Eastern Shore's poor foul shooting in a 72-65 victory on Saturday.

    Kyle Riley added 14 points for the Bison (6-16, 4-5 Mid-Eastern Conference), who never trailed in their third-straight win despite seeing a nine-point halftime lead dwindle to 66-65 late in the second.

    Keishawn Mayes scored 18 points for the Hawks (6-16, 2-7), but missed a pair of free throws with 1:09 remaining to keep Howard's 1-point lead in tact. Maryland-Eastern Shore shot 11-of-27 from the foul line.

    Myatt hit a pump-fake jumper on Howard's next possession to stretch it to 68-65, and the Bison hit four of six free throws to seal it.

    Maryland-Eastern Shore has lost four straight games.
