WASHINGTON (AP) _ Jabari Outtz scored 18 points to lead four players in double figures as Howard rolled to its fifth straight win in an 85-55 victory over Florida A&M in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference men's game Thursday night.

The Bison (5-15, 4-4 MEAC) started the season at 0-15.

Howard jumped out to an early 41-22 halftime advantage and never looked back in recording its biggest margin of victory in the season.

Outtz, a freshman who leads the team in five categories, led the way by hitting 8 of his points during a 22-4 run that all-but-buried the Rattlers (6-15, 1-10 MEAC), who dropped their eighth straight game.

The Bison got good efforts from Anthony Brown and Melvin Watson, who each scored 11 points, and Khalid Ross, who threw in a career-high 15.
