WBB: Campbell Falls in Overtime Heartbreaker against Presbyterian, 68-62

Posted January 5, 2013

— The Campbell women's basketball team raced out to a 40-19 halftime lead on Presbyterian College, but the Blue Hose worked back to tie the contest at 56 at the end of regulation and eventually won 68-62 in overtime on Saturday afternoon at Gore Arena/John W. Pope, Jr. Convocation Center.

Sophomore guard Kiera Gaines (Mechanicsville, Va.) paced the Lady Camels with 14 points, including a career-best three made three-point field goals, while junior guard Monique Spry (Wilson, N.C.) made two treys in overtime to post 12 points.

Following the battle of the top two defensive teams in the Big South, the Lady Camels fell to 2-1 in the conference and 10-4 overall, while Presbyterian has won all four of its league games and stands at 9-6 on the season. The Blue Hose made their frantic comeback and knotted the contest at 62 on a made free throw by Dria David, who missed a potential game-winning shot from the charity stripe with one second left after making the first.

Campbell had plenty of chances down the stretch as it grabbed an offensive board off a missed free throw with 12 second left and following a scramble for the ball, the Blue Hose was sent to the foul line. The most telling statistic for the Lady Camels may have been that they went the final 6:32 of regulation without a made field goal, but credit has to go to the Presbyterian defensive pressure.

The Lady Camels shot 37.5 percent during the contest as six players helped the team sink a season-high 11 three pointers. Junior guard Jessica Moore (Jacksboro, Tenn.), freshman guard RaeChaun Edwards (Spring Grove, Va.), Spry and Gaines each made two from behind the arc.
At the half, Campbell was 6-of-10 from three-point range and 16-of-30 overall, but a strong Blue Hose defense kept the Lady Camels to 6-of-29 (20.7%) in the second half, a season worst.

Presbyterian's shooting was exactly opposite, hitting 8-of-27 shots in the first, but it was completely different in the second as it compiled a 70.6 percentage (12-of-17). The overtime frame saw the Blue Hose make all three of their field goals to finish 48.9 percent for the game.

The impressive shooting for Presbyterian in the second half was aided by a 5-of-8 performance from three-point range by Kasey Hobbie and perfect shooting from Mariah Pietrowski, who made all three field goals and six free throws. Pietrowski and Hobbie each finished with 20 points, while David notched 16.

In similar fashion to the Wake Forest game, Campbell rebounded well on the offensive end with 17 boards, which included 12 in the second half, but were unable to capitalize on second-chance opportunities. The teams finished the game with 34 rebounds each as junior forward Roslyn Presley (Petersburg, Va.) and Gaines tied David from Presbyterian with a game-high seven boards.

Starting the first half, Presbyterian played a smothering defense that kept the score close, 10-9, through the first seven minutes. The Lady Camels continued to fight through it, drawing upon their prior experience at Wake Forest.

A three from Lovette put Campbell back in the lead and ignited a 22-2 run that was fueled on defensive stops via turnovers and strong rebounding that increase the advantage to 33-12 with 5:48 left. Threes by Edwards, Moore and Gaines were momentum swings for the Lady Camels, while senior guard Tonisha Baker (High Point, N.C.) and Lovette laid in shots on the fastbreak.
Presbyterian responded on a three from Hobbie and layup by Pietrowski, 33-17, before Baker drilled a three-point shot to become the fifth Lady Camel with a made trey.

Campbell took a 40-19 lead into halftime becoming just the third team to score 40 or more points in a half against Presbyterian this season.

To begin the second frame, the Blue Hose opened with a 17-5 run to cut the Lady Camels lead to 45-38 with 11:06 left on a Hobbie three pointer. Campbell answered with a rally of its own to push the lead back to 13 at 56-43 with 6:32 left.

The final 13-0 run by Presbyterian stopped any momentum for the Lady Camels as the Blue Hose made stop after to stop to help the rally and did not miss a shot during the stretch. Campbell did have five offensive boards during the span, but was unable to finish at the basket.

A three by Spry to start overtime seemed to provide Campbell with a new life, but Pietrowski would go down and make a layup in the paint. Later two free throws for the Blue Hose provided them with a 60-59 lead. Another three pointer fell for Spry on the next possession at 3:05, but that would be the final points of the game for the Lady Camels.

The Blue Hose used a layup from David and four free throws to close the game with the 68-62 victory.

It was the first overtime game for the Lady Camels since a 67-66 loss to Winthrop at Gore Arena on Feb. 25, 2012. Coincidently, the last overtime win for Campbell came exactly a two years from today at home against North Florida, 80-73.

The Lady Camels conclude a three games in five-day stretch on Monday with a 7 p.m. contest at Gardner-Webb in Boiling Springs, N.C. The next home game for Campbell is on Jan. 12 at 1 p.m. against High Point.
