LORMAN, Miss. (AP) Maurice Howard scored 24 points with seven 3-pointers, Jonathan Floyd added 15 with three 3s and Alcorn State hit 13 from behind the arc in beating NAIA member Blue Mountain College 79-55 on Friday night.

Reginal Johnson scored 14 points for the Braves (1-1), who trailed briefly until Jael Scott's layup sparked a 12-2 run for a 20-10 lead that grew to 41-31 at halftime.
