C-U In The Creek

The Campbell Men’s Basketball team looks to defend home turf against the Gardner-Webb Bulldogs Thursday night, a squad they are 3-0 against all-time inside Gore Arena.

Freshman Chris Clemons (team-leading 18 PPG) looks to spark the offense for Campbell, ranking second all-time on the school’s freshman scoring list. D.J. Mason leads Campbell racking up seven rebounds per game, and will be celebrating his 22nd birthday tonight.

Protect This House

Freshman Chris Clemons led all players in scoring (22), but his most noteworthy play of the night came on a Longwood fast break during Thursday night’s loss inside Gore Arena.

Clemons, the 5-foot-9 point guard, showcased his impressive vertical denying a layup attempt in the second half of Star Wars Night.

Check out the biggest play of the night and make sure to check out the Fighting Camels in action on Saturday at 12 p.m. for a televised game on the American Sports Network.

Give Me Liberty

The Fighting Camels MBB squad heads to Liberty University looking to split the two-game road trip Saturday afternoon on ESPN3.

Campbell has not won on Liberty University’s home floor since Jan. 5, 1976 (both schools were NAIA members at the time) when the Camels earned an 85-78 victory at Jefferson Forest High School.

But since Liberty moved into the Vines Center in Nov. 1990, five of Campbell’s eight losses have come by 10, or fewer, points.

Campbell looks to make history on Saturday afternoon led by an improved FT percentage (71.7), ranking 4th-best in the Big South.

Kyre Hamer has been a recent catalyst, improving his scoring mark to nearly 14 PPG over the last six contests. Chris Clemons continues to lead the Fighting Camels in scoring (17.1) shooting a league-best 90% from the free throw line; the 4th-best mark in the NCAA.

Make sure to follow the action live on @GoCamelsMBB and listen in starting at 1:45 p.m. on the Campbell Digital Network.

 

 

Road Warriors

The Fighting Camels led from start to finish inside Winthrop Coliseum, upending the conference leaders Winthrop Eagles, 90-83, closing out 2015 on a winning note.

Led by four players in double figures, including the second 30-point game of his career for freshman Chris Clemons, Campbell improved to 2-1 in Big South conference play.
