Charleston Southern erased a 20-point second half deficit with a furious rally, but a Russell Dean floater with 1.4 on the clock gave Hampton a 70-68 win Tuesday night in Big South action from Buccaneer Field House.

After a three-point basket from Chris Shelton to make it 41-21 at the 17-minute mark, Charleston Southern (1-5, 0-2 Big South) fought back behind a spark from Melvin Edwards Jr., Sean Price and Phlandrous Fleming Jr. for a 59-58 lead with just 4:13 to play.

Hampton (3-4, 2-0 Big South), however, answered with a 10-5 spurt and 68-64 lead with :58 to play. CSU wasn’t done as a Fleming transition layup cut it to 68-66 then a quick steal and score tied it with 19.4 seconds on the clock.

Dean hit a left-handed floater with just 1.4 on the clock for the game-winner as the Pirates escaped the Buccaneer rally.

Charleston Southern got another double-double from Fleming (19 points, 10 rebounds) and two-near double-doubles from Price (16 points, nine rebounds) and Edwards (21 points, eight rebounds) but a game-high 29 from Davion Warren and 19 from Dean was just enough to counter.
