Clemons scores 33 as Campbell tops Winthrop 88-77

BUIES CREEK, N.C. (AP) Chris Clemons scored 33 points and Campbell beat Winthrop 88-77 on Saturday in the teams' first meeting since last season's Big South title game.

The Eagles (7-7, 1-2) won the 2017 league championship game 76-59 but Saturday the Camels (7-8, 1-2) shot 58 percent and made 31 of 37 at the line to snap a four-game losing streak to Winthrop.

Clemons, the Big South scoring leader, made 9 of 12 shots and 13 of 15 free throws in extending his nation-leading double-figure scoring streak to 63 games and rising to third on Campbell's all-time scoring list with 1,745 points, passing Johnny Marshbanks (1,723 points from 1965-69).

Winthrop came in averaging a league-leading 10.3 3-pointers per game but was just 7 of 28 Saturday. The Eagles did make 20 of 26 free throws in a game with 49 fouls and 63 free throws.

Campbell led by 12 at halftime. Winthrop cut the lead to four a couple times in the second half, but Campbell rebuilt a 14-point advantage with five minutes left and the Eagles got only as close as nine after that.

Marcus Burk added 17 points and Mogga Lado a career-high 14 for Campbell.

Xavier Cooks scored 24 points with 12 rebounds to lead Winthrop with his 25th career double-double.
