With a 79-65 win over Delaware State, Hampton University officially wrapped up the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference regular season championship, and with that, the number one seed in next week’s MEAC Tournament at Norfolk Scope.
Fittingly enough, the Pirates (18-9, 13-2 MEAC), clinched the title by beating the same team they did in last year’s MEAC tournament championship game.
Across the water, Norfolk State took down visiting Howard University 84-66 inside Joe Echolls Hall. Both the Spartans (15-15, 11-4 MEAC) and the Pirates will meet in Norfolk for the regular-season finale on Thursday. Tip off is scheduled for 8:00 pm.
