Kendall Gray, Casey Walker and Tahj Tate combined for 38 points as sixth-seeded Delaware State became the latest team to pull an upset in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference quarterfinals, knocking off No. 3 seed Hampton 63-60 Thursday night.
The top three seeds in the MEAC have all lost in the quarterfinals, with top-seeded Norfolk State falling to eighth-seeded Bethune-Cookman and seventh-seeded North Carolina A&T knocking off second-seeded North Carolina Central Wednesday.
With the win, Delaware State (15-17) moves on to play N.C. A&T Friday night at 8 p.m.
The Pirates (14-17) swept the Hornets during the regular season, but couldn't overcome a 32-25 halftime deficit Thursday. Hampton shot 31 percent (9 of 29) in the frame.
Du'Vaughn Maxwell paced the Pirates with 16 points and 12 rebounds.
