HAMPTON, Va. -- Malique Trent-Street had 17 points, five rebounds, five assists and six steals and Hampton beat Delaware State 78-56 on Friday night.
Greg Heckstall added 17 points and seven rebounds for the Pirates (6-11, 1-1 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference), who took control with a 12-0 run to lead 19-8 in the middle of the first half. Delaware State cut the deficit to four, but Hampton rebuilt the lead to 11 by halftime and extended it to 54-32 before the 15-minute mark of the second half. The Hornets (2-17, 0-4) got no closer than 21 from there.
The rebuilding Wildcats are set to raise the 2018 national championship banner next week -- and also lower expectations for the season to come after multiple NBA departures.
