— Trey Freeman led a balanced Campbell effort with 13 points and the Camels extended their winning streak to 5 games with a 62-46 victory over Presbyterian Saturday night at the Templeton Center.

Darius Leonard and Andrew Ryan added 10 each for Campbell (8-9, 3-0 Big South), which opened the second period on a 12-0 run and led by as many as 17. Leonard hit double-figures for the fourth-straight contest, made 4 steals, and is averaging 13.7 points against league competition.

Campbell’s win streak is the team’s longest since a 5-game stretch to open the 2011-12 season. Presbyterian (3-14, 0-3) dropped its third-straight contests and fell to 0-14 against Division I competition this year.

Playing its second-straight league road game without leading scorer Darren White (21.8 ppg), who sat out with a knee injury, Campbell held Presbyterian to 33 percent (17-52) shooting and converted 14 PC miscues into a 20-12 edge in points off turnovers.

“We keep talking about when you go on the road, you have to defend, have long possessions and take good shots, and make free throws. That’s why our record is what it is,” said Campbell head coach Robbie Laing. “Minus a brief 5-minute spell midway through the second half, we did that.”

Marvelle Harris grabbed 13 rebounds for Campbell, which finished with a 35-30 edge on the glass. The junior forward from Macon, Ga., moved into 10th place on Campbell’s Division I era (since ’77-78) career rebounding list and now has 462 in 79 outings. CU has won the battle of the boards each time during its 5-game win streak.

“Marvelle was huge with 13 rebounds, which was magnified by a low-possession game. On a regular night, that total is probably 20,” said Laing. “I’m just proud of the guys battling through the adversity. We’re not riding anyone’s back. They’re doing it collectively.”

Khalid Mutakabbir led the Blue Hose with 18 points, while Jordan Downing added 13.

On the night, Campbell made 44.9 percent of its shots (22-49), 4-of-11 threes (.364) and canned more foul shots (14-17) than Presbyterian attempted (9-10).

After leading 27-22 at the half, Campbell held PC to 0-of-5 shooting and forced four turnovers during the opening 5:28 of the second period. Six different Camels scored during the 12-0 burst that pushed the advantage to 39-22 with 14:32 to play.

PC made one late push with a 10-2 run and Downing’s trey from the left side with 1:14 to go cut the margin to 53-46. However, Campbell made 9-of-10 from the line in the final 1:10 to seal its third-consecutive road victory, including an 86-81 OT triumph Jan. 2 at East Carolina and Wednesday’s 83-73 win at Longwood.

Campbell used a 10-2 run midway through the opening half to take its biggest lead (25-16) when Trey Freeman connected on a 3 from the top of the key with 4:32 remaining. However, Mutakabbir scored 7 of his 11 first-half points in the last 5:58 and the Blue Hose cut Campbell’s half-time lead to 27-22.

The Camels shot 11-of-21 (52.4 percent) from the floor, 4-of-8 from 3-point range and made 1-of-2 free throws in the first period. Presbyterian hit only 8-of-24 shots (.333) 0-of-4 threes, but made 6-7 from the stripe to stay close.

The Camels conclude their 3-outing road stretch Wednesday (Jan. 16) at VMI (7:00 p.m.).
