James Daniel scored 11 of his 14 points in the first four minutes as the Howard Bison quickly took command and cruised to a 78-51 victory over the visiting Hood Blazers Sunday night at the Burr Gymnasium.

Daniel made three 3-pointers and a dunk as Howard scored the game’s first 13 points. The Bison didn’t allow a basket for over 12 minutes against the overmatched Division III school.

Overall, Daniel, a sophomore guard, led Howard with his 14 points despite playing only 11 minutes.

Two other sophomores, forward/center Solomon Mangham (11 points) and guard/forward Damon Collins (10 points) both reached double figures.

Howard (2-3) broke a two-game losing streak with this victory. The Bison removed the suspense early, jumping out to a big lead and going up 46-17 at the break.

Hood (1-3) now has dropped two straight games.

Senior guard Chris Cook led the Blazers with 14 points. Hood shot only 28 percent from the floor and never generated much on offense.

Both of Howard’s wins have come at home and over Division III opponents – the other against Goucher, from Baltimore.

Howard next heads to Maryland-Baltimore County on Tuesday. UMBC’s coach, Aki Thomas, was a starting forward/center for Howard on its 2001-2002 team that made it to the MEAC tournament finals.

Hood doesn’t play again until Dec. 3, when the Blazers travel to Lebanon Valley.
