  • Lady Tigers trip up ranked teams...

    After beating No.3-ranked Azusa the night before, Campbellsville University’s Lady Tigers had validation on its mind on Dec. 10 when it took on 12th-ranked Bethel in its second game of the Citizens Bank Holiday Hoops Classic.
    And validation it got as the Lady Tigers pulled away in the second half for a 76-57 win, the second in a row over a top-20 team.
    “We didn’t play with a ton of energy in the first half,” head coach Ginger Colvin said, “but I thought we came out and did in the second half.”
