    The Tribe (5-3) shot 90.3 percent (28 of 31) from the foul line Thursday.

    Marcus Thornton and Tim Rusthoven added 13 points each and Rustoven seven rebounds for William & Mary.

    Calvin Thompson led Howard (2-8) with a season-high 24 points on 11-of-26 shooting.

    William & Mary led 38-30 at halftime. After Thompson's three-point play cut the deficit to 44-41 with 16:14 left, the Tribe went on an 8-2 run, and Howard never pulled closer than six points.
