Lady Camels Unable to Comeback at Presbyterian, 62-51

Posted February 22, 2013

— The Campbell women's basketball team fell on Thursday night, 62-51, at Presbyterian inside the Templeton Center. Senior guard Tonisha Baker (High Point, N.C.) paced the team with a game-high 17 points.

Strong defense was played by both teams, but the difference down the stretch proved to be Presbyterian going 13-of-18 from the charity stripe. Campbell, the second-best free throw shooting team in the Big South, went 7-of-16.

The Camels were held to 33.9 pct. from the field for the game as the Blue Hose picked up 30 defensive boards, compared to 17. Campbell did convert 12 second-chance opportunities.

Extending its 20 turnover streak to eight games was Campbell as it came up with 13 steals, while scoring 14 points off mistakes. The depth for the Camels showed as the bench poured in 19 as each of the 10 players that played made a field goal.

The pair of juniors guard Jessica Moore (Jacksboro, Tenn.) and forward Ashley James (Round Rock, Texas) scored six points. Sophomore forward Juli Osborne (Kingsport, Tenn.) provided a first-half spark with five points.

In the rebounding department, sophomore forward Kiera Gaines (Mechanicsville, Va.) totaled six followed by Baker with four. Campbell did notch a game-high 13 offensive rebounds.

Balanced scoring was displayed by the Blue Hose with three players in double figures led by Karlee Taylor with 17 points followed by Mariah Pietrowski and Shonda Burnside with 15 and 14, respectively. Adding 10 rebounds to registered a double-double was Pietrowski, while Brunside posted nine.

A 9-0 run to start the contest provided host Presbyterian with a lead it would not relinquish in the game. The Blue Hose made shots on each of their first four trips down the court.

With a 19-12 advantage, Moore drilled a three-point field goal, the first of the game for the Lady Camels at 6:13. Presbyterian responded with a three of its own by Taylor before Gaines hit an open jumper from beyond the arc, 22-18.

It appeared that Presbyterian would have a sizable advantage going to the break as it was up 27-20. A 6-2 run by the Camels with treys from Moore and freshman guard RaeChaun Edwards (Spring Grove, Va.) at the buzzer placed the deficit at 29-26 going to half time.

The Blue Hose shots 50 percent from the field, 13-of-26, while Campbell forced 10 turnovers.
Scoring the first eight points in the second half was Presbyterian before the Camels responded to come within 37-34 on a jumper by Baker.

A jumper nailed by junior guard Monique Spry (Wilson, N.C.) brought the Blue Hose lead to one, 39-38, with 10:19 remaining.

Following another made shot by Baker, the deficit was cut to one for the last time as Presbyterian used a 10-2 run to take a 51-43 lead. That rally started A Blue Hose streak of scoring points on 10-straight possessions to help clinch the 62-51 victory by not allowing a Campbell come back.

The Camels continue a season-ending three-game road trip on Saturday at 2 p.m. against Charleston Southern. High Point wraps up the regular season for Campbell on Thursday at 7 p.m. prior to the VisitMyrtleBeach.com Big South Championships.
