— The Campbell women’s basketball team sent its seniors Tonisha Baker (High Point, N.C.), Jazmine Cooper (Fayetteville, N.C.) and Monique Spry (Wilson, N.C.) off in style with a 64-39 victory on Saturday afternoon at Gore Arena/John W. Pope, Convocation Center. Baker paced the game with 11 points and filed up the stat sheet by adding seven assists and eight rebounds, while Spry totaled three points for the Lady Camels.

Bench scoring was vital for Campbell as the team totaled 29 to improve to 18-8 on the campaign and 10-5 in the Big South against UNC Asheville (2-24, 0-15). Head coach Wanda Watkins picked up victory No. 496 in the final home game of the season.

The Lady Camels compiled a 44.8 pct. field goal percentage during the contest as junior forward Ashley James (Round Rock, Texas), junior guard Jessica Moore (Jacksboro, Tenn.) and freshman guard Zena Lovette (High Point, N.C.) each scored eight points. Adding five points was sophomore forward Kiera Gaines (Mechanicsville, Va.) and freshman guard RaeChaun Edwards (Spring Grove, Va.), while junior forwards Heather Beadle (Austin, Texas) and Roslyn Presley (Petersburg, Va.) and sophomores forward Juli Osborne (Kingsport, Tenn.) and guard Summer Leverette (Turkey, N.C.) contributed four points each.

Even though playing time was spread around throughout the game, Campbell continued to stay in rhythm, totaling 22 assists. Seven assists were dished out by Baker and five were recorded by Gaines.
It was one of the most efficient games of the season for Campbell in transition as 20 turnovers led directly to 29 points, but only six were scored in the fastbreak. Gaines led the contest with four steals followed by Baker and Edwards with three.

For the first time in the last three games, the rebounding margin favored the Lady Camels, 41-34, as 13 players grabbed at least one. James registered seven boards followed by Gaines with six to pace the team.

Kelli Riles tallied game-highs in points with 12 and rebounds with nine for UNC Asheville. Adding eight points each were Jeanie Buckner and Gentry Manley.

With all the emotions from senior day, the first eight minutes were slow for both teams as the score was tied at eight. The Lady Camels took a 11-7 advantage on jumpers from Spry and Presley before the Bulldogs made a run to take a 12-11 lead with 7:55 left.

Trailing 17-16, the Lady Camels ended the frame on 17-2 run to take a 33-19 advantage into the half. Contributing for Campbell were Baker, Osborne, Gaines, Edwards and Moore. There were two ties and five lead changes as the Bulldogs stayed close by holding a 21-17 rebounding advantage, including eight offensive boards.

Starting out of the second half on a 6-0 run after a Gaines layup was UNCA to cut the deficit the 10 with 17:19 remaining. A pair of trey fell for Lovette and Presley added a layup to extend the lead to a comfortable 23 points, 52-31.

Towards the end of the contest, both teams had the opportunity to empty their benches and provide some younger players with some quality playing time.

The Lady Camels finish the season on a three-game road trip that begins on Thursday at Presbyterian with the tipoff slated for 7 p.m.
