Campbellsville University watched a nine-point halftime lead evaporate, but rode the combined 55 points by Bubba Long and Nestor Colmenares to a 72-63 upset victory over Concordia in the first round of the NAIA Division I men's national tournament in Kansas City, Mo. on Thursday.
"It's exciting to win a game three years (at nationals) in a row, and I hope we're not done yet and not satisfied with that," said winning coach Keith Adkins.
The Tigers have reached the round of 16 the past three years. Campbellsville played McKendree (Ill.) on Friday afternoon.
