Campbellsville University moved up the Mid-South Conference ladder with its second win of the week, a 72-66 home triumph over West Virginia Tech on Saturday.

The Tigers (19-6) raced out to a 36-25 halftime lead and never let the visitors gain a second-half lead.

Nestor Colmenares, who garnered MSC Player of the Week honors, had 19 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, three steals and two blocked shots to pace coach Keith Adkins' club. Deveon Jenkins added 18 for CU, which moved into a fourth-place tie with Pikeville, only one game behind the Cumberlands and Lindsey Wilson.

Campbellsville hosts No. 2-rated and undefeated Georgetown College, on Saturday at 4 p.m. Georgetown would move to No. 1 with a win as the previous No. 1-rated team, Mountain State (West Va.), lost at Lindsey Wilson on Tuesday.
