HIGH POINT, N.C. (AP) Tarique Thompson scored 14 points and Anthony Lindauer added 10 more as High Point broke away in the final three minutes to defeat Campbell 59-49 on Thursday night and snap a three-game losing streak.

The contest was tied 26-26 at halftime and remained tight through 17 minutes of the second half with seven ties. Miles Bowman Jr. and Lindauer each sank a pair of free throws to give High Point (15-14, 9-8 Big South) a 47-44 lead with 3:41 remaining.

Chris Clemons cut the lead to 47-46 eight seconds later but Lindauer and Luke Vargo hit back-to-back 3-pointers and the Panthers closed out the last 3 minutes on a 12-3 run.

Campbell (13-16, 6-11) ended the game with three straight turnovers. Clemons, the nation's fourth-leading scorer, returned from sitting out one game to injury and led the Fighting Camels with 23 points.

Campbell will host a first-round Big South Tournament game on Feb. 28 while High Point is through to the quarterfinals March 2.
