CHARLESTON, S.C. – Charleston Southern looks for another key road win Tuesday night and back-to-back season splits with the Camels after Campbell took a 60-58 decision inside the Buc Dome Jan. 10.
CSU also seeks their fifth win in the month of February as they've caught fire with the Big South tournament just around the corner. Since February began, the Bucs have gained ground on the 4-6 spots and currently sit in a tie for seventh with Winthrop.
CSU also has a chance for their fifth conference road win of the season tying Radford for the most in the Big South. A win would also give the Bucs a split with both Hampton and Campbell.
Last Time Out
- Fueled by a 25-point third quarter and four players in double figures, the Charleston Southern women's basketball team upset second-place Hampton 72-57 Saturday inside the Hampton Convention Center in Big South play.
- Senior guard Rachel Burns paced the CSU offense with 15 points while adding five boards two assists and two steals. Fellow seniors Ke'Asia Jackon (13 points, five rebounds), Shelby Wilbanks (12 points, six rebounds) and Breannah Bretches (12 points, five rebounds) finished the afternoon in double figures to counter a game-high 23 from Hampton's Laren Vanarsdale.
- Both squads traded 15 and 13-point quarters across the opening half for a 28-all tie but a CSU offensive outburst to open the third made all the difference as the Bucs raced to a 25-13 period and carried a 53-41 lead heading into the last stanza.
- In that third-quarter swing, CSU held Hampton to just .214 from the floor and kept the Pirates to a .346 mark across the full contest.
Scouting the Camels
- The trio of Lauren Carter (9.2 ppg), Shy Tuelle (9.0 ppg) and Taya Bolden (8.2) lead the Camel offense with Bolden pulling down a team-best 8.9 boards per contest.
- In the last matchup from Charleston, Campbell snuck out with a 60-58 win after Ke'Asia Jackson's jumper at the buzzer grazed off the iron.
- CSU carried a five-point lead into the final 10 minutes, but a 22-15 advantage gave the Camels the final margin.
- Carter scored a team-high 12 points while Hayley Barber added 11 for Campbell while CSU was paced by 19 from Ke'Asia Jackson and 14 from Rachel Burns.
- Campbell sits second in the Big South with a +4.9 rebound margin behind only UNC Asheville. The Camels also average the second-most boards behind Radford..
A Win on Tuesday Would
