Howard scores 26 as Central Arkansas holds off NW State

CONWAY, Ark. (AP) Jordan Howard scored six of his 26 points in the final minutes and Mathieu Kamba drove for a layup in the last seconds to seal a 61-58 victory for Central Arkansas over Northwestern State in the regular-season finale on Saturday night.

Central Arkansas (16-15, 10-8) will play on as the Bears had already clinched the No. 7 seed in the Southland Conference Tournament beginning in Katy, Texas on Wednesday.

Central Arkansas led 28-27 at the break but Northwestern quickly took a second-half lead and held it until Howard scored five unanswered points to go ahead 46-44 at the 8:18 mark. Ishmael Lane responded with a dunk and Czar Perry hit a jumper to retake the lead 48-46. The Bears took the lead for good after a Howard layup with 5:14 left.
