Jan. 23, 2003
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Senior center Tabari Brown (Brunswick, Ga.) tied a career high with 16 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for his second double-double of the season to lead Jacksonville to a 65-51 win over Campbell Thursday night in Atlantic Sun action at Swisher Gymnasium. The win is the 599th career victory for head coach Hugh Durham, who can become the 10th active Division I coach with 600 career wins when the Dolphins host Gardner-Webb on Saturday at 7 p.m. JU (8-10, 3-3 A-Sun) has won four of its last five games, while Campbell (4-12, 1-5) lost for the ninth time in the last 10 games.
Calvin Warner (Jacksonville/Sandalwood) added 15 points, nine boards and three steals for JU, which forced Campbell into a season-high 21 turnovers and had 13 steals. The Dolphins also outrebounded the Camels, 44-31, and limited them to just 6-of-23 shooting from outside the arc. JU dominated the inside, outscoring Campbell 42-22 in the paint and scored 16 second-chance points.
Senior center Ryan Lewis (New Orleans, La.) had five points and five rebounds in 12 minutes off the bench, while back-up point guard Riley Didion (Cambidge, Wis.) finished with a career-high five points, three rebounds and three steals filling in for Kevin Sheppard (St, Croix, Virgin Islands), who had just eight points in 24 minutes because of early foul trouble.
JU used an 11-0 run late in the first half to turn a 20-19 deficit into a 30-20 lead at the 2:10 mark. Didion stole the ball from Brooks Lee and went the length of the court for his second consecutive lay-up to give JU a 36-24 halftime advantage. Campbell's Jonte Edwards, who finished with 10 points on 5-of-6 shooting, scored the first basket of the second half, but JU answered with a 9-0 run to take a 45-26 lead at the 15:53 mark. James Daniels' (Port St. Joe, Fla.) three-pointer with 2:49 to play gave the Dolphins their largest lead, 65-43.
Tarick Johnson, the second-leading scorer in the Atlantic Sun, finished with 14 points to lead the Camels, who shot just 1-of-5 from the free throw line as the Dolphins committed a season-low nine fouls.
