The win for the Bulldogs extends their record to 16-7 on the year and 4-2 in the Watauga Valley Conference.

“I thought we shared the ball well,” Hampton head coach Ned Smith said. “Got the drives, kicked it to the open looks, inside and out. The chemistry was key for us tonight. We got a lot of kids off the bench tonight. With tournament time coming up, you never know when someone might get hurt, they all played hard. You got to win your road conference games.”
