Longwood rallies past Campbell 79-66

BUIES CREEK, N.C. (AP) -- Michael Kessens scored 22 points and Lucas Woodhouse added a career-high 20 to help Longwood beat Campbell 79-66 Wednesday night.

Jeylani Dublin added 15 points and Karl Ziegler came off the bench to score 14 for the Lancers (7-23, 4-11 Big South Conference), who have won four of their last five following a 14-game skid.

Longwood's leading scorer, Tristan Carey, was held to 1-of-12 shooting, but Woodhouse, who entered averaging 3.7 points, picked up the slack, hitting 6 of 9 shots and all seven free throw attempts.

The game remained close throughout, with 18 lead changes and six ties. Trey Freeman gave Campbell (12-18, 7-8) a 49-48 advantage with a layup midway through the second half but Longwood answered with a 17-7 run over the next six minutes to pull away.

Longwood shot 50 percent (28 of 56) for the fourth straight game.

Andrew Ryan paced Campbell with 16 points.
