Jan. 29, 2005
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Junior shooting guard B.J. Surry (Independence, Mo.) scored 18 points and dished out a career-best four assists in second career start as JU cruised by Campbell, 78-65, Saturday afternoon at Swisher Gymnasium. JU improves to 11-8 overall, 7-5 in the Atlantic Sun Conference, including six wins in the last seven games. The Dolphins, who played without senior guard David Lee for the second straight game, move into third place in the A-Sun with eight regular-season games remaining. Campbell (2-16, 0-11) remained winless in league play with its 12th straight defeat.
Dolphin head coach Hugh Durham got his 101st career win at JU to move within seven victories of becoming the Dolphins' all-time winningest coach. JU will look to continue its hot streak against the A-Sun's top team, Gardner-Webb, Monday at 7 p.m. at Swisher Gymnasium.
Junior forward Antonio Cool (Chicago Heights, Ill.) added 14 points and a career-best eight rebounds, while junior point guard Jesse Kimbrough (Mexia, Texas) had 14 points, six rebounds and a game-high six assists. JU dished out 18 assists on 27 baskets and shot a season-best 6-of-10 from three-point range. Surry and Cool each knocked down three treys.
Sophomore forward Haminn Quaintance (Sarasota, Fla.) set the pace defensively for the Dolphins with five blocks and five steals, while also scoring 10 points and grabbing eight rebounds. Quaintance moved into fourth place all-time on the Dolphins' career blocks chart with 128 rejections in just 46 career games. JU scored 33 points off 24 Camel turnovers, while recording 11 steals and nine blocks. The Dolphins improved to 8-1 this season when limiting opponents to less than 70 points.
Kimbrough hit a short jumper to spark a late 10-0 run which gave JU its largest lead at 67-50 with 3:58 to play in the game. The Dolphins forced three turnovers during the stretch and converted three straight lay-ups in transition. JU stretched a six-point halftime lead to as much as 10, but Campbell cut the deficit to 57-50 with 6:34 to play. The Dolphins hit 16-of-22 free throws in the second half and committed just four second-half turnovers.
Maurice Latham scored 17 to lead the Camels, while Camerlee Poole had seven points and a game-high 14 rebounds. Campbell out-rebounded JU, 42-33, including 23 offensive boards, but managed just 15 second-chance points and shot 8-of-25 from the free throw line.
