High Point edges Campbell when Clemons misses final shot
HIGH POINT, N.C. (AP) — Brandonn Kamga scored 17 points with 11 rebounds and High Point beat Campbell 57-56 Thursday on an awful shooting night for Chris Clemons, who still passed Elvin Hayes to move into 12th on the all-time NCAA scoring list.
Campbell came out of a timeout with 11 seconds left and Clemons, with the ball, let the clock wind down to two seconds before failing to draw iron on a deep 3-pointer. Clemons scored 23 points but on just 5-of-19 shooting, including 1 of 13 from the arc. He made 12 of 13 free throws. He has 2,898 points, passing Houston great Elvin Hayes (2,884). Alfredrick Hughes (Loyola Chicago) is 11th at 2,914.
Kamga’s 3-pointer with 1:26 remaining gave the Panthers (13-10, 6-3 Big South) a 57-54 lead. Clemons made two free throws with 49 seconds remaining.
