On Monday, December 5, Saadia Doyle and Tamoria Holmes tied for a team-high 16 points, and led the Lady Bison to a 59-49, victory over the Delaware State Hornets.

With just 4:06 left in the first stint, Howard pushed the margin to 11 (32-21) from a made basket by Brown from behind the arc. As 1:18 ran off the clock, both teams were scoreless until Tierra Hawkins finished a lay-up in the paint for a 32-23 score.

Going into the locker room, HU lead 36-28 over Delaware State.

Keeping a comfortable double-digit cushion, the Lady Bison pressed the stretch to 17 points with 8:04 remaining in regulation. HU didn't look back as it cruised to its second-straight conference victory, 59-49.
