In a game that saw no shortage of drama or defense, the home Campbell Camels used a three-point play with just :10 on the clock to escape Charleston Southern Friday night, 59-58.
Ricky Clemons made a basket through contact with :10 to play and made the ensuing free throw giving Campbell (9-9, 5-6 Big South) a one-point win after Charleston Southern (1-14, 0-11 Big South) had taken the lead on a go-ahead field goalfrom Phlandrous Fleming Jr.
Fleming scored 17 points on the night to lead the Bucs as while dishing out three assists, grabbing four rebounds and stealing four passes, but Campbell used a three-headed attack of Cedric Henderson Jr. (23 points), Josh Lusane (10 points,nine assists) and Clemons (10 points) to steal the last-second decision.
Defenses dictated play most of the night as neither side would lead by more than nine points and trade the lead six times to go along with 10 ties.
The trio of Sean Price, Terence Porter Jr. and Jamir Moore added 22 points for the Bucs off the bench and Melvin Edwards Jr. added eight but it wasn’t enough to push through in the defensive battle Friday.
Charleston Southern and Campbell end their series Saturday evening with a 5:30 p.m. tipoff with the Bucs looking for a split.
