By Bobby Brockman

 

Lindsey Wilson College’s men’s squad tallied 18 of the final 27 points to pin the first loss on Keith Adkins' Campbellsville University Tigers 65-56.
Kalen Kimberland and Wesley Hanspard each had 19-point games for the Blue Raiders while Jordan Myers’ 15 was tops for CU, who played without leading scorer Justin Ennis, who sat out the first tilt of a two-game suspension for fighting vs. UVA-Wise.

Campbellsville, which won its first two Mid-South Conference encounters over Pikeville and Virginia-Wise, played in the Lindsey Wilson Classic over the weekend and will visit St. Catharine on Thursday and Georgetown on Saturday.
