DOVER, Del. -- Ramon Mercado scored 12 points in 15 minutes off the bench and Hampton edged Delaware State 57-50 Monday night in Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference play.

Hampton (12-15, 9-4) trailed 26-22 at halftime but outscored Delaware State 35-24 in the second half to complete the rally.

The Pirates outshot Delaware State 40 percent (21 of 52) to 31 percent (18 of 58) and held the Hornets (12-15, 7-6) to just three 3-pointers on 20 attempts.
