Hampton vs Morgan State

Morgan St. 68, Hampton 56


BALTIMORE (AP) - Aric Brooks didn't miss a shot while matching his career high of 18 points and leading Morgan State to a 68-56 win over Hampton on Monday night, snapping the Bears' two-game losing streak.

Brooks came off the bench to shoot 4 for 4 from the field and 10 for 10 from the free-throw line. He also grabbed eight rebounds as Morgan State (4-11, 2-2 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) played its third game without coach Todd Bozeman, who is on administrative leave.

The Pirates (6-12, 2-3) kept the game close thanks to Darrion Pellum, who scored a career-high 36 points.

After Hampton got within two, 52-50 with 7:39 to play on a Pellum jumper, the Bears used a 7-0 run to pull away.

Pellum was 12 of 28 from the field, 5 of 12 from long range and 7 of 9 from the line. However, the other seven Hampton players shot a collective 9 of 37.
