GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Andre Armstrong, who made 3 of 5 3-point attempts, finished with 16 points as Coppin State made a season-high 13 shots from behind the arc to defeat North Carolina A&T 70-54 Monday night.
Coppin State (7-13, 4-3 Mid-American Athletic Conference) made 43.3 percent of its 3-point attempts, while limiting NC A&T to just 5 of 22.
Coppin State took an early 24-4 lead and held a commanding 40-23 halftime advantage. The Aggies cut the lead to 43-31 early in the second period, but could not close the gap as Coppin State led 61-36 midway in the period.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
