HAMPTON, Va. (AP) — Lawrence Cooks scored 17 points and Kalin Fisher added 12 points and Hampton's second-half surge catapulted the Pirates past Norfolk State 63-59 on Monday.

Norfolk State led 31-25 at halftime and doubled the lead when Jonathan Wade made a layup to make it 50-38 with 9:44 left to play. But Hampton put together a 14-2 run and tied it at 52 in a three-minute span.

Jermaine Marrow's 3 put Hampton up 55-52 before Wade hit a layup and Bryan Gellineau's layup tied it. Trevond Barnes made two foul shots and later added a tip-in and Hampton (13-15, 10-5 Mid-Eastern Athletic) never looked back.

A.J. Astroth added 10 points and Hampton managed to shoot just 30 percent (21 for 69).

Norfolk State (15-15, 12-4) got 19 points from Wade, who was the lone Spartan in double-digit scoring.
