BALTIMORE (AP) — Brandon Horvath scored 16 points to lead UMBC past Coppin State 86-77 on Sunday.
Horvath was one of six Retrievers players score in double digits. K.J. Jackson scored 14 points with seven assists, and five rebounds. R.J. Eytle-Rock scored 12 with seven rebounds and six assists, Keondre Kennedy scored 11 and Daniel Akin and L.J. Owens each scored 10. UMBC distributed 21 assists on 29-made baskets.
The win ends a two-game skid for UMBC (6-6) and marked just its second win in its last eight games after winning four straight to start the season.
Eytle-Rock’s 3-pointer tied it at 10-10 with 13:42 left in the first half, Dimitrije Spasojevic followed with a layup and UMBC led the rest of the way.
