The SportsXchange

Freshman Patrick Cole capped a big performance with two clutch free throws, helping visiting Coppin State beat Hampton 67-65 in overtime Monday in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference game at the Hampton Convocation Center.

The game appeared to be headed to double overtime, but Cole drew a foul and made both free throws with 1 second remaining in the extra session. The backup guard finished with a career-high 29 points and grabbed six rebounds for the Eagles (5-15, 2-3 MEAC).

Junior guard Ramon Mercado came off the bench to score 24 points for the Pirates (5-12, 2-2).

Coppin State and Hampton traded leads until Andre Armstrong made a 3-pointer to put the Eagles up 24-22 with 7:11 remaining in the opening period. The Eagles scored the last six points of the half to take a 37-30 lead into the locker room.

Coppin State went up 49-38 with 11 minutes left, but Hampton stormed back, using a 10-2 run to take a 56-55 lead with 3:11 to go. The Eagles reclaimed the lead moments later, but Du'Vaughn Maxwell made two free throws with 12 seconds left to force overtime.
