Bethune-Cookman beats Hampton 57-52

Jan 24, 2010 - 2:07 AM HAMPTON, Va.(AP) -- Albert Abrahams scored 17 points, including sinking a pair of free throws with 6 seconds left, to help Bethune-Cookman hold off Hampton 57-52 on Saturday.

CJ Reed added 16 points, six rebounds and four steals for the Wildcats (12-7, 5-1 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference), who have won consecutive games and five of their last six.

The Wildcats jumped out to a 21-9 lead, holding on despite blowing that advantage early in the second half.

Bethune-Cookman outscored Hampton 30-18 in the paint.

Vincent Simpson scored 17 points for Hampton (5-13, 2-4).
