    Brian Darden added 15 points, while Jervon Pressley and Powers scored 10 apiece.

    The two teams combined for 64 fouls and 92 free throw attempts.

    Daniel scored a career-high 38 points, knocking down six 3s and 16 of 24 free throws, but finished with nine of Howard's (6-21, 4-8) 20 turnovers. Tyler Stone added with 17 points.
