BALTIMORE (AP) -- Emmanuel Okoroba had a game-high 18 points, including the game-winning tip-in as Hampton rallied in the second half to beat Morgan State 64-62 Saturday.

Deron Powers had 17 and Du'Vaughn Maxwell added 13 with eight rebounds for Hampton (7-13, 4-3 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference).

Trailing 59-45 with 8 minutes left, Hampton used a 15-2 run capped by Dwight Meikle's jumper to get within one, 61-60, with 2:45 remaining.

Both teams went cold from the floor until Donte Pretlow's free throw extended Morgan State's lead to 62-60 with 4 seconds to go.

After Powers' layup with 1.8 seconds left tied the game at 62, Hampton turned over the ball when Justin Black was called for traveling after receiving the inbound.

With 0.5 ticks remaining, Ke'Ron Brown lobbed the inbound pass toward the rim and Okoroba tipped it in as time expired.

Anthony Hubbard led Morgan State (6-12, 3-4) with 16 points.
