BALTIMORE -- Jamal Barney scored 28 points and Loyola of Maryland dominated Howard in an 85-51 rout on Saturday.

Tony Lewis had 14 points and Brett Harvey added 11 for the Greyhounds (5-5), who snapped a three-game losing streak.

Mike Phillips scored 17 points and had seven rebounds for the Bison (1-9), who hadn't played a game since Dec. 5. Paul Kirkpatrick had 10 points and a game-high nine rebounds.

Loyola, which never trailed, jumped out to an 18-6 lead when Barney scored on a layup with 9:22 left in the first half. Barney went 11-for-14 from the floor and 3-for-4 from beyond the arc.

Howard did cut the Greyhounds' lead to 32-29 on Phillips' two free throws early in the second half. But the Bison pulled no closer as Loyola answered with six straight points and later took a 23-point advantage on Barney's three-point play.
