— Allan Chaney scored 18 points and High Point defeated Campbell 58-52 Wednesday night at Gore Arena.

The Panthers (12-10, 7-3) won their third-straight game and held on to first place in the Big South Conference North Division. Campbell (10-14, 5-5) dropped its fourth in a row

John Brown added 14 points and 8 rebounds and Adam Weary 10 points for the Panthers, who held Campbell without a field goal for a 5:26 span down the stretch.

Darius Leonard led the Camels with 12 points, 10 in the first half, while Antwon Oliver added career-highs of 10 points and 8 rebounds in 28 minutes. Trey Freeman was held to 6 points (8 below his average), but dealt 8 assists and pulled down a season-high 8 rebounds for Campbell, which shot 39 percent on the game.

“I thought we had great effort tonight, but the production didn’t match the effort,” said Campbell head coach Robbie Laing. “We were caught in-between and indecisive and didn’t produce on our shots. The effort on defense was high, energy level was good, but just didn’t stick the ball in the hole when we needed to.”

High Point finished the game shooting 46 percent (23-50) from the floor and made more free throws (10-14) than Campbell attempted (5-9). Campbell finished with a 35-32 edge on the glass, but committed 16 turnovers, which the Panthers converted into a 23-14 edge in points off miscues.

The Panthers led 26-25 at half-time and stretched the margin to 9 (40-31) with 13:12 to play on Chaney’s 3-point play. However, the Camels answered with a 12-1 run and took the lead on Hooker’s triple on the break with 8:39 to play.

However, Brown dunked and Derrell Edwards hit a triple to put HPU ahead, 46-43. Leek Leek’s three from the top of the key pulled Campbell within 48-47 with 5:36 to go, but Campbell didn’t score again until Hooker’s pull-up trimmed the gap to 56-49 with only 6.9 seconds remaining.

High Point jumped to a quick 8-2 lead as freshman forward John Brown scored the Panthers’ first four buckets in the opening 3:09. However, the Camels responded with 7-straight points and trailed by one (26-25) at the break.

Leonard scored 10 points and Oliver 7 in the opening period for Campbell, which shot just 39 percent from the floor, but had 7 second-chance points off 8 offensive boards. High Point hit 48 percent (12-25) of its shots in the first half.

The Camels travel to Charleston Southern Saturday for a 5:30 p.m. start.
