WASHINGTON (December 6, 2020) – Howard University men’s basketball team fell to the Bellarmine University Knights, 84-63, inside Burr Gymnasium.


Redshirt freshman Steve Settle, III (Glenarden, Md.) scored a career-high 23 points in the loss.


Senior Kyle Foster (Hampton, Va.) made back-to-back trey balls to open the contest and finished the first half with 11 points.


Settle netted 10 points in the first half, including a three-pointer to close the gap within 10 at the break, 45-35.


Settle strong start continued in the second period, racking up 13 points for a game-high 23 points.


Despite Settle’s strong performance, the Bison struggled shooting after intermission, going 9-of-27 from the field. HU finished the contest shooting just under 39-percent (20-of-52).


True freshman Jordan Wood (San Antonio, Texas) and redshirt freshman Cam Timmons (Warrenton, Va.) added 11 points and 10 points, respectively, in the loss.


Bellarmine earned its first victory as a NCAA Division I program, led by Dylan Penn with a team-best 22 points. Alec Pfriem notched a double-double (14 points and 14 boards) in the win.


Due to COVID-19, Howard Athletics canceled the contest versus Elon (Dec. 8). The Bison are scheduled to face rival Hampton University Friday, Dec. 18 on ESPN+.
