Whitfield nets season high, Camels snap skid

Posted

BUIES CREEK — Jordan Whitfield scored a season-high 18 points to lead Campbell to a 67-52 win over Charleston Southern University Wednesday night at Gore Arena.

Cedric Henderson Jr. added 16 points, six rebounds and four assists, while Ricky Clemons contributed 13 points and nine boards for the Camels (8-6, 1-12), who shot 56% from the floor and never trailed.

Tahlik Chavez led Charleston Southern (3-12, 0-3) with 17 points, including 5-of-10 shooting from 3-point range.

Campbell used an 11-2 run midway through the second half, led 35-23 at the break, and by as many as 16 points.  Sadarius Bowser scored underneath to cut the Camels lead to 35-28 with 18:56 remaining in the second period, but the Buccaneers never drew closer.

Whitfield, who had 17 points in Monday’s 74-72 loss at Winthrop, canned 7 of 10 shots against CSU – including 4 of 5 3’s – and dealt four assists. Henderson made 7 of 12 from the floor and Clemons 6 of 7 for the Camels, who ended a four-game losing streak.

Charleston Southern lost its sixth game in a row after shooting 44% from the floor. 

The Camels outscored the visitors 30-16 in the paint and finished with a 27-22 edge on the boards.

Other takeaways: 

  • Campbell has held 13 of its 14 opponents below 70 points and entered the game ranked first in the Big South, 25th in the nation, in scoring defense.
  • CU has won straight, and five of the last six, in its series with Charleston Southern.
  • The Camels host Radford Saturday with a 2 p.m. tip.
