Hampton beats Boston U. 51-50 in preseason NIT
WASHINGTON (AP)—Darrion Pellum scored 19 points and Charles Funches scored 12 of his 14 points in the second half as Hampton defeated Boston University 51-50 in the consolation round of the NIT Season Tip-Off on Monday night.
Tied at 47, Funches fed Danny Agebelese for a layup and then made two free throws to put the Pirates (3-1) up 51-47 with 1:04 remaining. John Holland’s three-point play brought the Terriers within 51-50 with 46.2 seconds left.
After a Pirates miss, Holland had the ball in the backcourt with 6 seconds left, but Hampton’s Kwame Morgan stole the ball and was fouled. Morgan missed the one-and-one, but the Terriers’ D.J. Irving was called for charging with 0.6 seconds remaining.
Holland scored 12 points for the Terriers (2-3), who shot only 25.0 percent from the field (16 for 64).
Pellum scored 17 points in the first half and the Pirates led 30-29 at halftime.
