At times, Hampton's Drake Schafer couldn't be stopped by the Meridian defense. The Mustangs paid for it, too.

Schafer went into the fourth quarter with 15 points and nailed a three-pointer on the first possession to give Hampton a 48-40 lead. 

Down the stretch, Schafer made seven of eight free throws as part of his 10 points in the final eight minutes. 

Meridian got as close as 54-50 with 1:42 remaining as Hampton made nine of 10 free throws in the final two minutes. 

In the girls game, the Lady Hawks struggled on offense in a 59-35 loss to the Mustangs. 

Hampton was led on offense by Lexie Wolinski with 11 points. 

The next game for Hampton is Thursday on the road at High Plains.
