Feb. 1, 2003
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - - Jacksonville University senior forward Kat Sungy (Arvada, Colo.) poured in a career-high 25 points and pulled down a game-high 13 rebounds to lead the Dolphins to their second-straight win, a 64-54 decision over Campbell in Atlantic Sun Conference action Saturday afternoon at Swisher Gymnasium. Sungy hit 7-of-10 from the floor and 11-of-16 from the line in posting her ninth double-double of the season, including the last two games.
Sophomore center Kara Donnell (Mattoon, Ill.) added 10 points and three blocked shots, while senior center Veronique McMillian (Los Angeles, Calif.) came of the bench to score nine points and pull down a season-high 10 rebounds. Junior guard Katie McDonald (Chandler, Ariz.) had nine points and tied her season-high with seven assists, while freshman guard Tara Eddy (Vienna, Va.) hit a pair of clutch threes off the bench.
The Dolphins (4-14, 2-5 A-Sun) shot 56 percent from the field, while holding the Fighting Camels (7-11, 3-4 A-Sun) to only 32 percent shooting, including 5-of-23 from behind the arc. JU dominated the game from the free throw line, hitting 21-of-29, while Campbell hit only 7-of-12.
Campbell jumped out to a 9-2 lead with 16:15 left in the first half, but JU responded with an 18-2 run over the next nine minutes to take an eight-point lead. The Fighting Camels cut the lead to one at 20-19 with 2:18 left, but that was the closest they would get the rest of the game as the Dolphins took a 26-22 advantage into the locker room. The Fighting Camels twice cut the lead to two in the first 10 minutes of the second half, but it was all Dolphins the rest of the way as they went on a 10-2 run to go up 54-44 with 3:56 remaining. McMillian hit a pair of free throws on two separate possessions to keep the lead at 10, and Eddy buried a three with 2:33 left to give the Dolphins an 11-point lead and put the Fighting Camels away.
The Dolphins return to action when they hit the road to face Belmont on Thursday at 5 p.m. CST in Nashville, Tenn., before returning home to host Samford on Saturday at 2 p.m. at Swisher Gymnasium.
