Howard averaged 28.5 points and 6.5 rebounds in a pair of wins for the Golden Eagles.
Howard scored 23 points and grabbed seven rebounds in a 82-63 win against the Wisconsin Badgers in Madison on Saturday. Earlier in the week, Howard poured in 34 points in a 91-81 win against Vermont.
For the two games, the 5’11 guard shot 52.6-percent from the field and was 10-of-20 from 3-point range. Howard leads the Big East in scoring at 22.5 points a game.
Off the court last week, Howard was named one of two student-athletes nationally to participate in the NCAA D-1 Men’s Basketball Oversight Committee.
