— The Campbell women's basketball team playing its third game in a five day stretch was in a point-for-point battle at Gardner-Webb and waited till the final six minutes to post an 11-0 run to come through with a 59-49 victory on Monday Night at Paul Porter Arena.

"After halftime, we were much more poised and shot the ball a lot better," said head coach Wanda Watkins. "We were really patient as a group. It wasn't just one player, but collectively we were in a really good team flow in the second half. Our kids did a great job defensively as well because both teams were very scrappy."

Junior forward Roslyn Presley (Petersburg, Va.) and freshman guard Zena Lovette (High Point, N.C.) each registered a game-high 13 points. Lovette tallied a season-best eight steals of which seven were in the first half as the Lady Camels improved to 11-4 overall and 3-1 in the Big South.

"From the onset, I thought that Zena had a presence out there defensively and for a while, she was our most poised offensive player," said Watkins. "She had a number of steals for us and kept coming up big, time and time again, when we were struggling to get the lead."

Adding nine points and pulling down a team-best 10 rebounds was sophomore forward Kiera Gaines (Mechanicsville, Va.). Senior guard Tonisha Baker (High Point, N.C.) and junior guard Monique Spry (Wilson, N.C.) added seven points each, while Baker also contributed five assists.

Neither team shot the ball well as there were eight ties and nine lead changes during the contest. Campbell finished at a game-high 36.5 percent, while Gardner-Webb was held to 32.1 percent during the contest, but totaled 18 second-chance points.

Gardner-Webb (7-8, 0-4 Big South) was ferocious on the boards and posted a +14 rebounding margin by gabbing a season-high 50 boards. Olivia Parker was strong on the defensive end with 10 rebounds and totaled 13 for the game.

Scoring in double-digits for the Runnin' Bulldogs was Jessica Heilig and Jasmine Dale with 11 and 10 points, respectively.

Besides the lopsided rebounding margin in favor of the Runnin' Bulldogs, the Lady Camels forced a season-high 28 turnovers, leading to 25 points. Campbell registered eight steals during the contest with six players recording at least two.

The Runnin' Bulldogs started off quickly, building an early 8-4 lead. A three from Lana Doran put GWU up 17-11 with 11:39 left.

The first Lady Camels comeback began with a trey from Lovette and layups from Gaines and James to knot the contest at 18. Spry drilled an open three with 3:49 left to provide Campbell with its first lead of the game, 21-20.

The first half ended with a 24-all tie and 12 steals helped to force 17 turnovers at the break. Lovette tallied seven steals in the first half, while Baker found open teammates with four assists, but was unable to find the score sheet.

After the break, both teams fought back and forth with neither team grabbing a lead larger than four as Gardner-Webb took a 47-44 advantage with 6:20 left.

The turning point of the game was an 11-0 run that put the Lady Camels in the lead for good at 55-47 with 1:48 remaining. Lovette and Presley started it off with back-to-back layups that led to a dagger, a three-pointer by Baker, before two more layups from Baker and Presley ended the rally.

The Runnin' Bulldogs were unable to make a comeback in the late moments of the game as Presley and junior forward Heather Beadle (Austin, Texas) knocked down free throws to preserve the victory, 59-49.

The Lady Camels return to Gore Arena/John W. Pope Convocation Center on Saturday with a 1 p.m. matinee against High Point.
