The High Point Panthers wrap up the Big South title with a win over the Campbell Fighting Camels.
Campbell has been suffering through a season ending slide where they have dropped eight of ten where both the scoring and defense have come and gone. In the process the Fighting Camels have dropped to the lower half of the Big South which is not the place to be come playoff time. Radford took advantage of a struggling defense to upend Campbell 82-78 on Wednesday behind 53% shooting and 13 bombs to outlast the 52.8% shooting of the visitors. The Fighting Camels received 18 points each from Andrew Ryan and DJ Mason with Luke Moyer and Reco McCarter adding 12 and ten points.

The overall numbers tell us that opponents are outscoring High Point 73-72 but in conference action that trend has been reversed by quite a margin which is why this team sits atop the Big South. The Panthers have won five straight after edging out VMI 70-67 on Wednesday after taking a 14 point lead with them in to the break and then holding off a late Keydets comeback. HP burned the nets with 52% shooting and held the visitors to only 37% but VMI totaled eleven more shots and enough of them fell to make things interesting. In the end nobody could stop John Brown who poured in a game high 27 points and grabbed ten rebounds with Devante Wallace adding 16 points and five yanks followed by a ten point effort from Anthony Lindauer.
If you examine the numbers each have put up Campbell's have been all over the map so it's anybody's guess what we'll see from the Fighting Camels...
