Allan Chaney scored 18 points and High Point defeated Campbell 58-52 Wednesday night at Gore Arena.
The Panthers (12-10, 7-3) won their third-straight game and held on to first place in the Big South Conference North Division. Campbell (10-14, 5-5) dropped its fourth in a row
John Brown added 14 points and 8 rebounds and Adam Weary 10 points for the Panthers, who held Campbell without a field goal for a 5:26 span down the stretch.
Darius Leonard led the Camels with 12 points, 10 in the first half, while Antwon Oliver added career-highs of 10 points and 8 rebounds in 28 minutes. Trey Freeman was held to 6 points (8 below his average), but dealt 8 assists and pulled down a season-high 8 rebounds for Campbell, which shot 39 percent on the game.
“I thought we had great effort tonight, but the production didn’t match the effort,” said Campbell head coach Robbie Laing. “We were caught in-between and indecisive and didn’t produce on our shots. The effort on defense was high, energy level was good, but just didn’t stick the ball in the hole when we needed to.”
