VIRGINIA 84, Howard (Bison, 10,491 students, Washington, DC) 63 – Mustapha Farrakhan made his first 11 shots from the field, including eight 3-pointers, and scored a career-high 31 points Tuesday night, leading Virginia to a victory over Howard.

Joe Harris hit five 3-pointers and added 16 points for the Cavaliers (10-5), who snapped out of a long-distance funk in which they went 11 for 63 over their past three games. Virginia was 16 for 25 from beyond the arc, falling two 3s shy of the single-game school record.

Mike Phillips scored 21 points and Dadrian Collins 15 for Howard (2-11), which lost despite shooting 53 percent with eight 3s. The Bison couldn’t keep pace with Farrakhan.

The senior had 18 points by halftime. He hit five 3s during a streak of nine consecutive 3-pointers for the Cavaliers, who took command with a 31-12 burst. It gave them a 41-28 lead, and the Bison only cut it to single digits once— briefly—after that.

MARYLAND 95, Colgate (Raiders, 2,825 students, Hamilton, NY) 40 – Jordan Williams had 12 points and 11 rebounds for his eighth straight double-double, and Maryland used an early 22-0 run to blow past Colgate on Tuesday night.

Williams’ string of double-doubles is four short of the school record, set by Len Elmore in the 1973-74 season. Williams, a 6-foot-10 sophomore forward, has reached double figures in both points and rebounds in 12 of 14 games this season.

Adrian Bowie scored 16 points and freshman guard Terrell Stoglin had 12 in his first college start for the Terrapins (10-4). Cliff Tucker and Dino Gregory also scored 12 for Maryland, which next faces top-ranked Duke on the road Sunday night.

Joe Hoban scored 10 for the Raiders (1-12), who were coming off a win over Longwood. Colgate has lost to Duke, Syracuse and Maryland by a combined 164 points.

Colgate made the game’s first basket—a jumper by Pat Moore—but started 1 for 16 from the field with two turnovers and fell hopelessly behind, 22-2.
