    If you play in a place you proudly call “The Barn” it’s no wonder that you win 94 percent of your home games.

    That was the case until Sunday when Campbellsville punctuated a three-game Xavier University losing streak with a thrilling 71-70 win. The Golden Nuggets had won 80 of 85 home games until Langston, Lindsey Wilson and the Lady Tigers ran through The Barn.

    “We were lucky today,” coach Ginger Colvin said. “They outplayed us in every aspect of the game but the score.”
