DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Quinton Chievous scored 20 points, including a short jumper with five seconds left, to help Hampton beat North Carolina Central 80-79 Monday night.

Hampton was down one with 10 seconds left. After N.C. Central's Dajuan Graf missed a pair of free throws, Dionte Adams gathered the rebound and sent the outlet to Reginald Johnson Jr. Johnson dribbled down the left sideline and found Chievous in the lane, whose contested jumper banked in. Brian Darden stole the inbound pass to seal the win.

Johnson led Hampton (10-7, 6-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic) with 26 points, seven rebounds and seven assists. Lawrence Cooks added 13 points.

N.C. Central (7-13, 2-4) was paced by Patrick Cole with 28 points, six rebounds and four assists. Rashaun Madison scored 12 points, while Dante Holmes and Jeremiah Ingram both added 11 points.
