Michael Harper led four players in double figures with 20 points Monday, and the visiting Coppin State men's basketball team dealt Norfolk State its first Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference loss of the season, 87-82.


Led by Harper, the Eagles (11-11, 6-3 MEAC) had balanced scoring and their second-best shooting performance of the season.


Coppin shot 55.1 percent from the floor, including a blistering 62.5 percent in the second half, to avenge a 74-66 loss to the Spartans two weeks ago in Baltimore.


The Eagles also got 16 points from Tony Gallo, while Akeem Ellis had 14 and Logan Wiens scored 12.


After making just four of 27 shots from the field in the first half, Norfolk State (16-7, 8-1) shot 52.9 percent in the second half.


The Spartans were led by Kyle O'Quinn, who scored 27 points and grabbed 18 rebounds. Chris McEachin scored 17 points, Pendarvis Williams had 11 and Rob Johnson and Brandon Wheeless had 10 points each.


Coppin raced to a 12-0 lead and took a 35-13 lead into halftime. Trailing by 23 with 9:05 to play in the game, Norfolk State went on a 19-4 run to climb to within 70-62 with 3:34 left. But the Eagles made 14 of 18 free throws down the stretch to close out the game.

Hampton 68, Morgan State 63: Christopher Tolson went 4-for-4 from the free-throw line in the final minute to help seal a win over the visiting Bears (3-5, 5-14).


Tolson scored a game-high 19 points to lead Hampton (4-5, 8-14 MEAC), which withstood last-second baskets by Morgan State's Larry Bastfield (Towson Catholic).


Morgan led for most of the game and held a 31-28 halftime advantage.


DeWayne Jackson took over in the second half and scored 15 of the Bears' first 19 points. He hit three 3-pointers during a three-minute stretch, including a pull-up 3-pointer on a fast break, to give Morgan State a 50-47 lead with 9:07 left.
