Hampton Pirates (15-19)


Winthrop to 11th NCAA Tournament with 76-68 win over Hampton

ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) It took a freshman to bring Winthrop back to where it almost always used to go - the NCAA Tournament.

DJ Burns scored 16 points, 12 of them in the second half, to lead the second-seeded Eagles to a 76-68 win over fifth-seeded Hampton on Sunday in the Big South Conference championship game.

Winthrop is off to its 11th NCAA Tournament, but just the fourth for the Eagles (24-10) since 2007, when coach Gregg Marshall set the bar for small conference excellence, winning the Big South seven times in nine seasons before heading to Wichita State.
