HU women maintain spot in first place with 73-62 win over Norfolk State

HAMPTON, Virginia -- In the latest installment of the “Battle of the Bay,” Hampton Univeristy’s women’s basketball team maintained its spot atop the MEAC standings and added another L to Norfolk State’s winless season.

Mikayla Sayle had a career day with 15 points and nine rebounds as the Lady Pirates defeated the Spartans 73-62 Saturday at the Convocation Center. HU led by 24 points early in the third quarter but had trouble putting away the Spartans, who have lost 20 consecutive games dating back to last season.

It was the fifth consecutive win for the Lady Pirates (9-12, 7-1 MEAC), who maintained their one-game lead in the conference standings. On the other side of that spectrum, Norfolk State (0-19, 0-9) remains one of two winless teams in Division I.

Malia Tate-DeFreitas had 24 points and six rebounds.
