Hampton holds off Radford

Our prediction for this game was Hampton 55, Radford 51. Sometimes, we amaze ourselves. Of course, other times we embarrass ourselves with these picks. But no need to point that out now, because hey, we're on a (one-game) roll.

Hampton 52, Radford 51: The Highlanders (2-3), who erased a 10-point second-half deficit and had a chance to tie with .3 seconds left Victoria Hamilton at the line for two shots and Radford down 52-50. A career 57-percent free throw shooter, Hamilton made the first but missed the second. That was hardly why the Highlanders lost, though, as for the second straight game it took them until midway through the second half before they found their rhythm. They got away with it Saturday at George Mason; it bit them in the butt Monday. Radford did get another strong game from Da'Naria Erwin Spencer, who led all scorers with 17 points. Erwin Spence had 18 against George Mason. Ema Reskoska added 13 points and 5 rebounds in 23 minutes. Choicetta McMillian scored 14 points to lead shorthanded Hampton (2-4), which held on to snap a four-game losing streak. Starters McMillian, Quanneisha Perry, Melanie Warner and Laura Lewis all logged at least 38 minutes.
