HAMPTON, Va. -- Patrick Cole scored a season-high 29 points and hit two late free throws to help Coppin State escape Hampton 67-65 in overtime Monday in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference matchup.

Hampton (5-12, 2-2) rallied from a 51-42 deficit to a 56-55 lead behind a 3-pointer from Mercado at the 3:11 mark. But the Pirates were held scoreless until Maxwell's free throws with 12 seconds showing sent the game into OT.

Both teams opened overtime with a 3-pointer and exchanged baskets until two Cole free throws tied it at 65-65 with 52 seconds remaining. Hampton missed its ensuing shot, a 3-pointer, and Cole converted two free throws with 1 second left to create the final margin.

Neither team shot well, Coppin State (5-15, 2-3) at 33 percent (23 of 70) and Hampton at 34 percent (21 of 61), but the Eagles grabbed a season-high 48 rebounds.

Mercado led Hampton with 24 points.
