(Sunday, November 21st)

Final Score: Samford 60, Campbell 56

Auburn, AL (Sports Network) - Jeffrey Merritt scored 12 points, leading three players in double figures, as the Samford Bulldogs secured a 60-56 win over the Campbell Fighting Camels as part of the Global Sports Hoops Showcase at Auburn Arena.

Also scoring in double digits for the Bulldogs (3-2) were Andy King and Josh Bedwell with 10 points apiece in the team's third win in the last four outings.

The Fighting Camels (2-3) were paced by Lorne Merthie with a game-high 22 points, shooting a perfect 4-of-4 from three-point range and 8-of-13 from the floor overall in the setback.

Samford led by as many as seven points in the first half, shooting an impressive 9-of-17 behind the three-point line in the period to post a narrow 32-30 advantage at the break.
