NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Jonathan Wade hit a pair of 3-pointers down the stretch and Norfolk State bounced back after having its 10-game win streak snapped Monday to beat Howard, 73-65 in the Spartans final home game of the regular season Saturday night.

With one game left in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference schedule, Norfolk State is two games back of conference leader North Carolina Central and one game ahead of Morgan State in second place. The Spartans close out the regular season Monday at Hampton.

Wade and Zaynah Robinson each scored 16 points to lead Norfolk State, which shot 48 percent from the field (24 of 50), including 3 of 10 from long range, and was 22 of 34 from the free throw line. Kerwin Okoro and Alex Long contributed 13 and 12 points, respectively.

Charles Williams hit five 3-pointers and finished with 28 points to lead Howard (7-22, 4-10). Solomon Mangham added 13 points.
