Campbell University President Dr. J. Bradley Creed is heavily invested into tonight’s Campbell Men’s Basketball game for a variety of reasons.
First and foremost, Creed spent 14 years in higher-level education at Samford University. What adds to this rivalry, however, is that his daughter, Emily Grace, is currently enrolled at Samford and will be inside Gore Arena tonight rooting on her Bulldogs.
The Fighting Camels and Bulldogs will meet for the first time since 2014, making tonight’s matchup the first since Dr. Creed took office at Campbell University. Fans can watch the action live at 7 p.m. on the Big South Network and listen on 88.3 FM – WUAW.
