DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Paul Scotland scored 16 points to lead four Bethune-Cookman scorers in double figures as it downed Howard 64-50 Monday night.
The Wildcats (10-16, 5-6 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) led 33-21 at halftime as Scotland hit three treys and scored 13 of his points before the break.
Howard (6-21, 3-10) made just 7 of 16 free throws in the first half and 16 of 27 overall after hitting only 14 of 24 from the line in a 46-45 loss to Florida A&M Saturday. The Bison made just 34.1 percent (15 of 44) from the field, including only 4 of 11 3-point attempts.
Mike Phillips led Howard with 13 points.
Bethune-Cookman held an 18-7 advantage in points off turnovers and a 24-12 edge in points off the bench.
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
Andrew White III will return to the Nebraska men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.
