LEBANON, Tenn. – Seventeen points by Brian Blackmon and 15 from Elijah Gillis was not enough to takedown Campbellsville University, as the Bulldogs fell 67-57 at the Dallas Floyd Recreation Center Thursday night.
Gillis and Jerret Towns started the game off on the right note for the Bulldogs, with Gillis connecting on a bucket in the paint 20 seconds into the contest and Towns hitting a free throw and scoring off his offensive board to give CU a 5-0 early advantage.
The Bulldogs’ lead was taken midway through the first half on a 3-pointer by the Tigers’ Jordan Myers to push Campbellsville ahead 14-11, but a Blackmon jumper pulled CU within two. Myers then answered with a jumper on the other end to push the lead back to three.
Gillis’ second 3-pointer of the game at the 7:01 mark in the first half regained the lead for CU but was erased by a Malik Thomas score in the lane on a putback. Gillis nailed his third and final three of the game for a one-point Bulldog advantage with 5:14 remaining in the first half, but Myers broke loose for another 3-pointer, regaining the lead for the Tigers.
Campbellsville would not relinquish the lead the rest of the game, leading by as much as 15 with 6:28 left to play. A layup by Charles Stewart layup closed the gap to 61-50 with 4:33 remaining on the clock, but it was not enough for the Bulldogs.
Justin Ennis had a game-high 19 points for the Tigers, and both Addison Smith and Jordan Myers added 10.
Cumberland takes on Lindsey Wilson College at the Dallas Floyd Recreation Center Saturday at 4 p.m. CT.
