  • Tiger hoopsters go to 12-2

    Campbellsville University shot only 40 percent from the field but had little trouble in posting their 12th win in 14 decisions over Berry (Ga.) on Monday night in the Powell Athletic Center.

    While the Tigers may have had a bad shooting game, coach Keith Adkins' troops did not let up on the defensive end as they held the visitors to 1-13 from behind the three-point line and 34.5 percent shooting overall from the floor.

  • CU tabs Thomas to guide Tiger...

    Campbellsville University introduced Perry Thomas as its new head football coach in a press conference Friday morning.

    "The winning starts today," said Thomas in accepting his first collegiate head football coaching position.

  • Thomas' hiring makes you...

    Just when you feel like life's not fair, something happens to make you realize it might not be that bad after all.

    Jim Deaton is a good man. But, that didn't help the Campbellsville University football Tigers who finished the 2007 season with a 0-10 worksheet.

    Just like winning became a habit during some of the Ron Finley era, finding ways to lose have been prevalent the last several games at CU.

    Deaton resigned last month, feeling and hoping someone else could take control and bring the Tiger football program out of its doldrums.

  • Adair escapes again with 50-42...

    Adair County scored 23 of the final 35 points to post a 50-42 home-court victory over Campbellsville on Tuesday night.

    The Eagles, who played without Shumari Bridgewater who was sitting out a one-game suspension after being ejected during Saturday's game at Christian Academy, battled the Fifth Region favorite Indians and led by as many as five points and held a 30-27 advantage with 4:05 left in the third frame.

  • Tigers get eighth straight

    Sixth ranked Campbellsville University built a 21-point lead in the second half en route to its 11th win of the season, 73-55 at Berea College on Saturday night.

    The Tigers held Berea to 33.3 percent shooting, including 20.7 percent from the three-point line and had three players score in double digits.

    Marcus Nicks paced the Tigers with 14 points, including 7-8 from the free-throw line, Kyle Martin had 12 points and Nestor Colmenares chipped in 11.

    Campbellsville (11-2) hosts Berry (Ga.) in the final game of the 2007 portion of the season on Monday at 6:00.

  • Lady Indians pull away late from...

    Adair County's Lady Indians used a second-half run to pull away from Campbellsville 59-36 Tuesday night in Columbia.

    Coach Mike Sneed's Lady Eagles held three first-quarter leads before Adair County used 10 points from Carli Burton to pull ahead for good.

    CHS trailed only 21-20 before the Lady Indians scored the final four points of the first half.

    The Lady Eagles stayed within striking distance and trailed only 35-31 when Bronte Karr nailed a three-pointer at 3:51 of the third quarter.

  • Cards get it inside during rout...

    Coming off their lone loss of the season, Taylor County's Cardinals posted a convincing 89-51 home triumph over Bethlehem.

    "We did a better job feeding the post," TCHS head coach Troy Young admitted. "Which was a point of emphasis after the Adair County game."

    The Cards fell behind 7-0 and 10-2, but "finally woke up a little bit" to lead 21-14 at the first-quarter stop and 39-25 at halftime.

    Taylor County put up 50 second-half points and Young was afforded the luxury of using his bench in its fourth win in five contests.

  • Lady Tigers drop two in Citizens...

    Lambuth's Lady Eagles, the defending NAIA Division 1 national champions, used an 18-3 run to end the first half and never looked back in an 85-74 win on Saturday over the Campbellsville University Lady Tigers in the Citizens Bank Classic.

    The Lady Eagles took their largest lead, 46-26 at the start of the second half before Campbellsville managed to claw within eight points at 74-66 with 2:47 remaining when Courtney Danis' basket pulled the Lady Tigers within single digits.

  • CU volleyball assistant coach...

    Doris Wefwafwa of Kenya, a student assistant volleyball coach at Campbellsville University, and a former All-American for the Lady Tigers volleyball team, died unexpectedly Monday afternoon after a short illness.

    Wefwafwa, who was to graduate tomorrow with a bachelor of social work degree, died at Hardin Memorial Hospital in Elizabethtown, Ky. She was 34.

    "Campbellsville University will get Doris home to be with her family," said Dave Walters, vice president for admissions and student services, at a prayer service for Wefwafwa on Tuesday in the Ransdell Chapel.
