  • Lady Tigers swipe road win at No...

    For the past four seasons, the University of the Cumberlands has had the Lady Tigers’ number.

    Over that span, Campbellsville is 1-9 against the team from Williamsburg and hasn’t beaten the Lady Patriots on their home floor since the MSC Championship of 2004.

    But the numbers changed for CU Thursday night as the Lady Tigers found a number — a small one — and turned back Cumberlands in overtime 68-65 in the NAIA Game of the Week. The win gives the Lady Tigers a one-game lead in the MSC standings.

  • CU Tigers steal conference win...

    When it comes to Mid-South Conference play, T.J. Bishop is milking his senior season for all it’s worth. The Boynton Beach, Fla. native scored eight of Campbellsville University’s last 12 points to steal a road victory at University of the Cumberlands 65-61 Thursday night.

    The win is only the third at the Rollins Center in Williamsburg in the Keith Adkins era. It also keeps the No. 9 Tigers atop the Mid-South Conference, now only a two-way tie with Pikeville College after St. Catharine knocked off No. 18 Georgetown in overtime.

  • Eagles hope to stop three-game...

    Hope Wigginton’s left-wing three-pointer, a Mercedes Cox base-line jumper and Wigginton’s right-wing three made it 55-51.

    The Eagles (16-2) trailed 20-18 with 5:50 left in the first half, but reeled off 17 of the next 25 points to lead by 10 (35-25) at the intermission.

    Matthew Davis tallied eight points during the run, and in the fourth frame Bryton Taylor had a spurt of eight points in less than two minutes as the CHS lead grew to 29 at one time.

    Taylor finished with 27 points while Davis had 12 (plus six assists), Aaron Schwoebel 11 and Thomas Downs nine points and 11 rebounds.

    Messer (17), Whitney Ballinger (16), Mackenzie Lee (11) and Megan Isaacs (10) all reached double digits for coach Ginger Colvin’s club.

    The ninth-rated Lady Tigers visit the University of the Cumberlands on Thursday with the top spot in the MSC on the line.

    Whitney Ballinger did everything but sell popcorn at Tuesday night’s Campbellsville University Lady Tiger at Lindsey Wilson basketball game.

    However, the junior from Car roll County did have 33 points, 22 rebounds, five blocked shots, four assists and three steals in 36 minutes of action as coach Ginger Colvin’s club won 83-67 to go to 18-1 on the season and 3-0 in the Mid-South Conference.
