HAMPTON, Va. (AP) - Jermaine Marrow had 22 points, a career-high eight rebounds and two steals and Hampton beat Coppin State 77-65 on Monday night to snap a three-game skid.

Lawrence Cooks scored 17 and Kalin Fisher added 14 for Hampton (7-13, 4-3 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference), which has a one-game lead in its 37-game series with the Eagles.

Chas Brown hit a pair of free throws to cap a 7-0 run and give Coppin State (5-18, 4-4) an 18-17 lead but Cooks answered with back-to-back 3-pointers before Trevond Barnes hit a third with 4:46 left in the half to put the Pirates in front for good.

A layup by Cooks made it 57-45 with 8:40 to go but Dejuan Clayton scored eight points, including two 3s, as Coppin State trimmed its deficit to 67-63 with 1:51 remaining. Charles Wilson-Fisher’s dunk 11 seconds later ignited a 10-2 run to close the game.

Clayton led Coppin State with 20 points.
