BUIES CREEK, N.C. (AP) Chris Clemons finished with 27 points, moving into eighth place on the NCAA all-time scoring list, as Campbell topped High Point 61-48 on Thursday night.
Clemens passed Bradley's Hersey Hawkins (3,008) when he nailed a 3-pointer just 4:10 into the game. Next up for Clemens is Keydren Clark of Saint Peter's (3,058). Clemens ran his double-figure scoring streak to 109 games, third best in Division I history. Clemens also moved up the made 3-pointers list with 420, sinking six against High Point and passing Davidson's Steph Curry (414) and East Carolina's Akeem Richmond (416) for ninth place all-time.
Andrew Eudy had 16 points, 15 rebounds and three blocks for Campbell (16-11, 9-4 Big South Conference), which earned its fifth consecutive home victory.
Campbell entered halftime trailing narrowly, 26-25, but the Fighting Camels were able to outscore the Panthers 36-22 in the second half to roll to the victory. The Panthers' 22 second-half points marked a season low for the team.
The Fighting Camels evened the season series against the Panthers with the win. High Point defeated Campbell 57-56 on Feb. 7. Campbell takes on Longwood on the road on Saturday. High Point takes on Gardner-Webb at home on Saturday.
