Howard gets tough win over UMES on Senior Night

On February 26, 2012

On Senior Night, February 20 Howard overcame a seven-point halftime deficit to defeat the University of Maryland-Eastern Shore, 53-51, at Burr Gymnasium. "We've been in that position a few other times throughout the year so we knew what we had to do," said Howard forward Mike Phillips.

The Bison never quit and continued to wear down the Hawks with tough defense in the second half. "In the second half we went back to sharing the basketball and, running our [offense]," said Howard University head coach Kevin Nickelberry, "We gave ourselves a chance in the second half."

With less than seven minutes to play, freshman standout Sim Frazier finished a tough layup to cut the lead to one (43-42), but missed the free throw after the foul. Forward Mike Phillips snatched the offensive rebound and kicked the ball out to reset the Howard offense. Frazier nailed a triple to give the Bison the 45-43 lead with 6:29 to play.

Howard led by 6 with 2:17 to go, but the Hawks cut the lead to two in the final minutes.

With less than 3 seconds on the clock, UMES guard Ishaq Pitt missed a short jumper with hands in his face to end the game.

The Bison play their last game of the season on the road at Delaware State on February 25.
