Feb. 24, 2001
BUIES CREEK, N.C. - Sophomore post player Kat Sungy (Arvada, Colo.) recorded her 10th double-double of the year, but it was not enough as JU fell to Campbell, 72-54, Saturday afternoon at Carter Gym.
Sungy tied freshman forward Yolisha Jackson (Clarkesville, Tenn.) with 14 points and grabbed a game-high 13 rebounds. Both had solid outings shooting the ball as Jackson converted 6-of-7 attempts while Sungy went 7-of-10 from the field. JU shot 39.0 percent for the game, including a 44.4 clip in the second half, but the Camels outhshot the Dolphins 44.8 for the contest, including a 51.4 mark after halftime.
The Dolphins jumped out to an early 8-5 lead, but Campbell fought back and took a 15-8 lead at the 9:19 mark. It was a back-and-forth battle the rest of the half, and it appeared that the Camels would go into the lockerroom at halftime with a comfortable, double-digit lead. But down 31-17 with less than two minutes to play before the break, JU went on an 8-0 run to cut the lead to just six and went into the intermission with some momentum.
The momentum shifted benches early in the second half, though as Campbell opened the period with an 11-4 run. JU cut the lead to 45-37 with 14:21 left to play, but the Camels went on an 11-0 run over the next 6:09 to take control of the contest.
The Camels' lead swelled to as many as 22 when Campbell led 68-46 with 4:41 to play. JU went on an 8-0 run to cut the lead to 14 at the 1:21 mark, but it was too late as Campbell held on for the win.
Campbell's Sara Moore led all players with 18 points, while April Cromartie chimed in with 16. Crystal Clarity led the Camels with nine rebounds while also added 12 points. Janice Washington had 10 points and led all players with a game-high six assists.
The Dolphins return to action on Saturday, March 3 when they travel to DeLand, Fla., where JU will take on TAAC foe Stetson in the final game of the regular season.
