TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (February 8, 2020) – Guards Gia Thorpe (Pittsburgh) and Iyanna Warren (Accokeek, Md.) combined for 38 points in the road win at Florida A and M (FAMU), 82-56, inside the Al Lawson Center. With the win, HU improved to 14-9 (6-4 MEAC) on the year while sweeping the Rattlers.
Thorpe and Warren each had career days scoring the rock. Thorpe led all scorers with 20 points on 50-percent (6-of-12) shooting while the Maryland native produced a career-best 18 points off the bench.
HU dominated the Rattlers from nearly start to finish, outscoring FAMU in all four quarters.
Howard attacked the rim at-will while getting to the charity stripe. HU shot 81-percent (34-of-42) from the free throw line, including 94-percent (16-of-17) in the fourth.
Taking a two-point advantage into the second, 10-8, the Bison extended their lead to double digits, 26-15, thanks to a trey ball from Thorpe.
FAMU sliced the margin down to seven, 26-19, with more than two minutes before intermission, but five freebies pushed the lead to 12 at the break, 31-19.
Both clubs shot over 50-percent after halftime, but Howard went 9-of-11 at the foul line to balloon the advantage to 16 after three, 54-38.
HU imposed their will in the final period, shooting nearly 55-percent (6-of-11) from the field while limiting Florida A and M to under 32-percent (6-of-19).
Freshman Makayla Minett (Chicago) also had a career performance, flirting with a double-double (11 boards and nine points).
Second-year forward Krislyn Marsh (Duncanville, Texas) added 15 points and senior guard Ayonna Williams (Washington) netted 12 points in the win.
For FAMU (4-17, 2-8 MEAC), they were held under 29-percent (20-of-70) shooting while committing 21 turnovers. Jasmine Ballew led the Rattlers with 17 points in a losing effort.
Monday (Feb. 10), the Bison wrap up its Florida trip at Bethune-Cookman. Game time is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. inside historic Moore Gymnasium.
