Clemons heads up the Camels’ scoring on the year with 24.8 PPG, 4.6 RPG and 2.8 APG. Also in double-figures for Campbell is Marcus Burk (15.5 PPG), while Andrew Eudy (9.7 PPG) isn’t far off.
Over on the Radford side, they’re currently 15-12 on the year. The Highlanders have lost their last three straight games, and fell to UNC Asheville on Saturday. In that one, Radford’s Ed Polite led the way on 16 points.
Polite is also the leading scorer for Radford on the season, with 14.0 PPG and 8.1 RPG. The only other Highlanders player averaging in double-digits this year is Carlik Jones with 11.4 PPG and 3.9 RPG to his credit.
Campbell is 4-1 ATS in their last five versus the Big South and 6-2 ATS in their last eight games overall. The over is 4-1 in the Camels’ last five Thursday games and 5-2-1 in their last eight versus the Big South.
Meanwhile, the Highlanders are 1-4 ATS in their last five following a straight-up loss and 1-4 ATS in their last five versus the Big South. Radford is also 0-5 ATS in their last five home games and 1-4 ATS in their last five following a straight-up loss.
After a bad run of games where they scored a max of 64 points in three outings, Campbell has come back to score at least 78 in each of their last two. The last time these teams played on January 21, it was a 59-56 Campbell win. Since Radford hasn’t been scoring that well lately (64 or less in each of their last three), I like the Camels to manage a cover here.
