Charleston Southern rebounds from deficit to beat Campbell
NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Christian Keeling scored 22 points and Charleston Southern rebounded from a halftime deficit to beat Campbell 72-69 on Wednesday night.
Keeling hit all seven of his free throws and added a team-best eight rebounds. Javis Howard scored 13 points while Armel Potter, Cortez Mitchell, and Raemond Robinson each chipped in 11 for the Buccaneers (9-17, 5-10 Southern Conference).
A pair of Robinson free throws gave Charleston Southern a 68-60 lead with 4:58 to go, a 15-point turnaround from its 37-32 halftime shortfall.
Campbell did not lead again, but managed to battle back to 70-67 with 2:02 to go. However a Potter jumper with 1:49 left lengthened the Charleston Southern lead back to five, and the Buccaneers held on the rest of the way.
Chris Clemons scored 30 points for Campbell (13-14, 6-9), which hit 10 3-pointers but shot just 41.1 percent.
