    The Rattlers outscored Howard 13-8 in the overtime, building a 66-60 lead on Jenkins' 3-pointer with 44 seconds left.

    Howard (7-21, 6-7) cut the lead to 69-67 on Kyle Riley's layup with 14 seconds left, but Larry Jackson hit a free throw and Chris Walker added two more to seal the victory.

    Yannick Crowder scored 12 points and had seven rebounds for Florida A&M.

    Riley finished with 15 points and Adam Walker -- who had 14 rebounds -- Paul Kirkpatrick and Curtis White added 10 points each for Howard.
