ORANGEBURG, S.C. -- Devin Joint's tip-in with four seconds left, his only basket, gave South Carolina State a 62-60 upset of Delaware State Thursday night.

The game was tied at 60-60 after Delaware State (13-17, 8-8) got a 3-pointer from Tahj Tate (17 points) with 22 seconds left. Adama Adams missed a layup with 0:06 remaining, but Joint tipped in the game-winner.
The Bulldogs shot 27 for 59 from the field, Delaware State 22 of 49.
