Gary Blackston's 3 for the Panthers made it 56-all, but Emmanuel Ejeh answered with a put-back dunk and then made two free throws with 6:34 remaining and the Delta Devils led the rest of the way.
Hamilton made a 3 to pull PVAMU (11-17, 8-6) within three points with 2:47 left, but MVSU hit 9-of-10 free throws from there to seal it.
