DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Shawntrez Davis had 17 points and 12 rebounds and Bethune-Cookman rallied to beat South Carolina State 86-80 on Wednesday night in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference opener.
South Carolina State (4-12) took its last lead, 71-69 with five minutes left. Jeffrey Altidort scored five points, Malik Maitland hit a 3-pointer and Davis a jumper during a 10-2 surge and Bethune-Cookman (6-9) led 79-73 with 2:29 to play. James Richardson's jumper pulled the Bulldogs to 79-75, but they didn't get closer.
Jim Calhoun, who has a career record of 873-380 and led UConn to three national titles before retiring in 2012, has been hired as coach at Saint Joseph.
Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott believes a tentative ruling making show-cause orders illegal in California would threaten NCAA membership for state schools.
Guard James Bouknight, ranked 87th in the ESPN 100, is the first player from the Class of 2019 to commit to UConn and first-year coach Dan Hurley.
