Drumwright, Jacksonville State hold off Howard late, 62-60

JACKSONVILLE, Ala. (AP) Malcolm Drumwright's jumper with nearly three minutes to play proved to be the game winner as Jacksonville State held off Howard for a 62-60 victory on Monday night.

Drumwright tied the game at 59-59, but RJ Cole stole the ball, drew a foul and hit the first of two free throws to give the Bison the lead, 60-59 with 3:03 left. Drumwright hit again with 2:45 left to make it 61-60 and added a free throw about a minute later to set the final score.

Howard (2-11) had multiple shots in the final minutes but could not get one to drop and now is 0-10 on the road to start the season.

Jason Burnell and Ashton Spears each scored 14 points to lead the Gamecocks, with Drumwright and Marlon Hunter adding 12 and 11 points, respectively.

Cole, a freshman, led Howard with 27 points, including season-high six 3-pointers.
