BALTIMORE (January 27, 2020) – Howard University senior guard Ayonna Williams (Washington) joined the 1,000-point club after guiding the Bison to a 66-54 road win at Coppin State (CSU). With the victory, HU improved to 12-8 (4-3 MEAC) on the season.

In the opening period, Williams made a layup at the 4:05 mark and became the newest Bison to reach the milestone. On the night, the D.C. native finished with nine points, nine rebounds, five steals and four dimes in the victory.

Third-year sharpshooter Jayla Thornton (Newark, N.J.) led all scorers with 25 points while grabbing a career-best seven boards.

HU controlled the tempo throughout, dominating the paint with 28 points while forcing 23 Eagles’ turnovers, which led to 32 points.

Despite holding the lead for more than 36 minutes, CSU fought back with numerous runs.

Coppin State’s Alexandria Hamilton made a trey ball and gave CSU the upper hand momentarily, 24-26, but Howard scored 16 unanswered and held their largest advantage with 40 ticks left in the third, 51-28, which put the game out-of-reach.

Howard produced 21 bench points, led by newcomer Brooklyn Fort-Davis (Chicago) with 11 points.

Senior guard Sarah Edmond (Freeport, N.Y.) missed her second consecutive game due to injury.

For Coppin State (0-19, 0-7 MEAC), Chance Graham notched a double-double (20 points and 19 boards) in the loss.

Monday night’s contest had multiple extended stoppages that led to the length of game approximately more than two hours. In the second period, senior forward Imani Bryant (Berkeley, Calif.) exited the game due to a medical matter, which is doing much better.

At the end of the third quarter, several technical fouls were assessed, which led to three ejections.

HU hosts two more games before a crucial five-game road swing.
Saturday (Feb. 1), Howard takes on Morgan State at 2 p.m., followed by a 5:30 start time against Coppin State Monday (Feb. 3).
