LAS VEGAS — Jermaine Marrow had 19 points, six rebounds, eight assists and four steals to help Hampton beat winless Northern Arizona 76-66 on Thursday in the Las Vegas Invitational.

Hampton led by as many as 19 points in the first half and had a 12-point lead at halftime. Marrow was just 2 of 8 from the field in the opening 20 minutes and finished 4 of 14. But he made 10 of his 12 free throws as the teams combined for 55 attempts in the game.

The rest of Marrow’s teammates shot a combined 56 percent (23 of 41) from the field. Charles Wilson-Fisher had 13 points and 13 rebounds, and Akim Mitchell added 10 points for Hampton (2-4).

Torry Johnson led Northern Arizona (0-5) with 24 points on 7-of-19 shooting. He was 7 of 12 from the free-throw line as the Lumberjacks hit only 16 of 28.
