Hamilton, who currently ranks second in the SWAC in points per game with 18.2, scored 18 points with three rebounds, one assist and tied a career-high with two blocks at Ohio this past Wednesday.

The 6-foot-4 forward followed that up by tying a career-high with 31 points to go along with five rebounds and one steal at New Mexico this past Friday.
