DOVER, Del. (AP) Tahj Tate scored 19 points and Delaware State took advantage of Howard's woeful second-half shooting for a 63-46 victory Wednesday night in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference game.
Tate scored 14 of his 19 points in the second half when the Hornets (7-10, 2-1), leading 30-27 at halftime after Tyshawn Bell's 3-pointer at the buzzer, coasted home. Delaware State opened the second half on a 10-0 run to take a 40-27 lead. It only got worse from there for Howard (4-17, 1-6).
The Bison made just 4 of 30 shots from the floor in the second half, a 13.3 shooting percentage. That doomed Howard to a fifth straight loss and ninth in the last 10 games.
Simuel Frazier was the only Bison in double figures with 15 points, 12 coming in the last 5 minutes of play. For the Hornets, Bell's 14 points included three treys. Marques Oliver added 10 points.
WASHINGTON -- The Washington Nationals say they have agreed to a one-year deal with 40-year-old reliever Joaquin Benoit.
The team announced the move Wednesday, along with placing pitcher Joe Ross on the 60-day disabled list as he recovers from Tommy John surgery in July.
The Nationals didn't release terms of the agreement, though a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Monday that it was for $1 million.
The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal wasn't official at the time.
