LORMAN, Miss. (AP) — A.J. Mosby tied his career high with 22 points and Maurice Howard scored 18 points to help Alcorn State beat NAIA Blue Mountain College 83-56 on Monday night.

Mosby made 9 of 13 from the field with six assists and two steals. Dante Sterling added 11 points and Avery Patterson scored 10 with a career-high tying six assists for Alcorn State (4-8).

Howard hit back-to-back 3-pointers and then made a jumper to spark a 15-2 run that gave the Braves a 23-15 lead midway through the first half. Blue Mountain trimmed its deficit to four points but Patterson answered with a 3 and, a couple minutes later, Sterling scored eight straight points to ignite a 12-0 spurt that pushed the lead into double figures for good just before halftime.

Viktor Lorenzon had 13 points to lead Blue Mountain.

Freshman Kobe Wilson, who came in with 13 career rebounds, had four points and 11 boards for Alcorn State.

The Braves are 0-8 against Division I opponents this season.
