  • Tigers blank Bears 24-0

    Instead of trailing at the half like it had in the last three close losses, the Campbellsville University football Tigers held a 9-0 advantage en route to a 24-0 shutout over visiting Pikeville College on Saturday afternoon.

    Greg Fountain's 23-yard, first-quarter touchdown run and David Hon's 25-yard field goal put the Tigers (3-8) on top 9-0.

  • Cards next gridiron foe nearly...

    When 8-3 Taylor County hosts Estill County tomorrow (7:30) on Clay Marcum Field at Thomas Porter Stadium in the second round of KHSAA Class 3A playoffs, the Cardinals are close to facing an undefeated squad.

    The Blue and White Engineers from Irvine are 10-1 with only a 7-6 setback at district champion Breathitt County (9-2 with season-starting losses to Johnson Central and Prestonsburg) on Sept. 19 ruining a perfect campaign.

  • CU Tiger hoops continue road...

    Campbellsville University's brutal early road schedule continued with losses to Auburn Montgomery and Faulkner in Montgomery, Ala. and an exhibition setback at NCAA Division 1 Western Kentucky University on Tuesday night.

    Coach Keith Adkins' team, ranked 18th in the preseason NAIA Division 1 poll, fell 83-73 in double overtime to No. 21 Auburn Montgomery on Friday despite 22 points and 15 rebounds by senior All-American Zach Allender.

  • Samford shoots down CU 73-54

    Campbellsville could not overcome a red-hot shooting performance by Samford over the first nine minutes of a 73-54 exhibition loss in Birmingham on Thursday.

    Samford made nine of its first 10 shots from the floor to build a 17-point lead.

    "There's just no way to prepare for what they do offensively and defensively," coach Keith Adkins said. "They run such a different style of offense and some tricky defenses that are just hard to reproduce in practice."

  • Lady Tigers add three more to...

    After losing their season opener to No. 1 rated Union (Tenn.) University, coach Ginger Colvin's Campbellsville University Lady Tigers (4-1) have reeled off four in a row after weekend wins over Walsh and Daemen and a Tuesday-night triumph vs. Brescia.

    The Lady Tiger reserves, led by Wendi Messer's game-high 19, tallied 45 of their points in an 85-75 home victory over Brescia.

    Sophomore starters Courtney Danis (14) and Whitney Ballinger (11) also reached double figures as all 13 CU players scored.

    Courtney Danis hit four free throws in the last 15 seconds to seal an 88-84 Campbellsville University Lady Tiger (1-1) victory over Robert Morris (0-1) on Friday night in the Powell Athletic Center.

    Danis led all scorers with 21 points but got good support as three other Lady Tigers scored in double figures.

    The free throws weren't Danis' only heroics as she drained a three-pointer at the intermission buzzer that gave Campbellsville a 44-41 lead.

  • Tigers triumph in roundball...

    If there were any questions surrounding the comeback of Zach Allender after missing last season following knee surgery, the 6-7 senior started answering them on Saturday by posting a double-double as Campbellsville University bested Mid-Continent 78-74 at the Lindsey Wilson College Classic in Columbia.

    Allender had a game-high 22 points and hauled down 10 rebounds to lead the Tigers to the season-opening win in a game that stayed close throughout.
